The Lipez region of southwest Bolivia is the locus of a major Neogene ignimbrite fl areup, and yet it is the least studied portion of the Altiplano-Puna volcanic complex of the Central Andes. With sharp satellite images, detailed figures and a highly competent description of each registered volcano, this catalog is invaluable for all earth scientists working in the Andes.
It is this region that de Silva & Francis. have set out to document, using the last decade of Landsat. The next chapter fills. the body of the book, and describes 44 volcanoes of the.

The Andes Mountains are made up of rocks that have been folded and faulted, as well as many hundreds of volcanoes. Sabancaya is the middle and smallest of three glacier-topped stratovolcanoes in the Peruvian Andes. Because many of these volcanoes are in high and dry places there is often little information about their past activity. Sabancaya must be younger than its neighbors because it has two large dark lava flows on its east side. But it had no known historic activity when it began erupting in December 1986.
