There are no Holocene eruptions known for Taburete. If this volcano has had large eruptions prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The following references are the sources used for data regarding this volcano. References are linked directly to our volcano data file. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title. Additional discussion of data sources can be found under Volcano Data Criteria.

Taburete volcano rises above the Pacific coastal plain east of the Río Lempa at the SW end of a cluster of volcanoes between San Vincente and San Miguel volcanoes. Basaltic to basaltic-andesite Volcán Taburete is elongated in a NW-SE direction and overlaps with Tecapa volcano to the NE. The 1172-m-high summit of Taburete forms a prominent peak that rises about 170 m above the southern crater rim. A well-preserved, 150-300 m deep summit crater has a low point on its eastern rim. A fairly recent lava flow descends the southern flank of the volcano (Williams and McBirney, 1955). Loma Pacha cone on the lower SE flank fed a thick lava flow that traveled 1 km to the SE. The age of the most recent eruption of Taburete is not precisely known, and Weber and Wiesemann (1978) did not map Holocene deposits from Taburete.
