Cerro Nicholson, a small isolated scoria cone, was constructed on a plain WSW of Chachani volcano and WNW of El Misti volcano. Andesitic bombs surround the crater of this relatively young volcanic feature that displays a well-preserved crater at the summit of the scoria cone and has a morphology similar to the Holocene Andahua scoria cones farther to the north. Cerro Nicholson was erupted through a 1.65-million-year-old Arequipa Airport Ignimbrite deposit erupted from a now-buried site beneath the Chachani volcanic complex.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Cerro Nicholson. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Cerro Nicholson page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Cerro Nicholson.
The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Cerro Nicholson.
The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. 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.
