Eruptions of Aguilera volcano
The A1 eruption of Aguilera volcano occurred 3,000±100 years ago, and erupted a volume of 4- 9 cubic km. The eruption produced white tephra which is deposited along the shores of Lago Argentino. Aguilera A1 tephra has not been observed on Tierra del Fuego, but has a very wide distribution north of the Strait of Magellan. Tephra over 10 cm thick deposited at least 80 km east of the volcano, and greater than 5 cm thick 130 km east of the volcano.
