Thin lahar deposits downstream from Casita Volcano, Nicaragua
Photograph by K.M. Scott on March 20, 1999

The passage of the lahar 8 km downstream of Casita Volcano is recorded by a thin pebbly-mud deposit around the base of this tree. At this distance, the flow was still a debris flow and more than 1 km wide. Note the woody debris and piece of metal roofing material in the deposit.
