 (JPG) Potrillo volcanic field, New Mexico (997,411 bytes) ( 2,427 x 2,400 )
The Potrillo volcanic field is located on the Rio Grande Rift in southern New Mexico. Different kinds of volcanism form distinct landforms. The western part is composed of hundreds of cinder cones and flows. The eastern side has a small shield volcano with many tube-fed lava flows and two large maar craters, formed by the explosive interaction of magma with ground water. The age of the field is between 1 million to 20,000 years old. The image was acquired August 26, 2002, covers an area of 36 by 36.4 kilometers, and is located at 32 degrees north, 107.1 degrees west.
