Landslide and tsunami hazard at Yate volcano, Chile as an example of edifice destruction on strike-slip fault zones

Abstract:

The edifice of Yate volcano, a dissected stratocone in the Andean Southern Volcanic Zone, has experienced multiple summit collapses throughout postglacial time restricted to sectors NE and SW of the summit. The largest such historic event occurred on 19th February 1965 when ∼6.1-10×106m3 of rock and ice detached from 2,000-m elevation to the SW of the summit and transformed into a debris flow.
