This caldera from a super volcano was formed only 3500 years ago. Aniakchak Caldera formed during an enormous explosive eruption that expelled more than 50 km3 (11.5 cubic miles) of magma. The caldera is 10 km (6.5 miles) in diameter and 500-1,000 m (1/2 mile) deep. Subsequent eruptions formed domes, cinder cones, and explosion pits on the caldera floor.
Ilopango is a caldera that formed in 260 A.D. Ash from this explosive eruption covered much of central El Salvador. Lake Ilopango fills part of the caldera. Islas Quemadas, a volcanic dome, formed within the caldera in 1879-1880. Periods of dome extrusion coincided with tidal forces. Earthquake swarms preceded each extrusion.
