"Melimoyu is a stratovolcano with an 8-km-wide, largely buried caldera located about 40 km NW of the town of Puyuhuapi. The ice-filled caldera is drained by a glacier through a notch in the NE caldera rim. The basaltic-andesite volcano is elongated 10 km in an E-W direction and has several cinder cones. A 1-km-wide crater is located at the summit of the volcano. Two late-Holocene tephra layers have been documented from Melimoyu."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
