Research in the Vailes Caldera

Valles caldera is best known in recent years as an excellent example of a resurgent caldera [Smith and Bailey, 1968] and as the site of a high-temperature geothermal system [Dondanville, 1978]. However, Valles caldera and the surrounding Jemez Mountains volcanic field possess a rich history of geologic research that dates back to the late 1800s.
