Geology Picture of the Day – Parícutin

Browsing through some random links on StumbleUpon (for those interested, my StumbleUpon profile is located here), I found this page on the Mexican volcano Parícutin.

Parícutin is famous for its unexpected and sudden birth in a cornfield on February 20, 1943. It began as a large fissure that opened in Dionisio Pulido’s field and quickly grew to a height of 336 meters within one year, burying nearby villages under cinder blocks and lava flows.

Source: Unknown.

Parícutin last erupted in 1952.

The walls of a church are all that remain in the town of Parícutin.
