The site includes several pictures and geologic information from Kirt Kempter's research at (and around) the volcano. This well composed resource is divided into 3 main sections:
  1. Pre-Rincon Geology (caldera-related volcanism)
  2. Rincon Geology
  3. Volcanic Hazards
A special emphasis is given to the last major eruptive product involving juvenile magma (dubbed the Rio Blanco tephra).
