Santa María Volcano is a [[#|large]] active volcano in the western highlands of Guatemala, [[#|close]] to the city of Quetzaltenango. Prior to the Spanish Conquest it was called Gagxanul (or Q'aq' Ixkanul]) in the local K'iche' language.[1] Its eruption in 1902 (VEI 6) was one of the three largest eruptions of the 20th century, after the 1912 Novarupta and 1991 Pinatubo eruptions. It is also one of the five biggest eruptions of the past 200 (and probably 300) years.
Santa María is part of the Sierra Madre range of volcanoes, which extends along the [[#|western edge]] of Guatemala, separated from the Pacific Ocean by a broad plain. The volcanoes are formed by the subductionof the Cocos Plate under the Caribbean Plate, which led to the formation of the Central America Volcanic Arc.

Eruptions at Santa María are estimated to have begun about 30,000 years ago. For several thousand years, eruptions seem to have been small and frequent, building up the large cone of the volcano, reaching about 1,400 metres (4,600 ft) above the plain on which the nearby city of Quetzaltenango sits. Following the cone-building eruptions, activity seems to have [[#|changed]] to a pattern of [[#|long periods]] of repose followed by the emission of small lava flows from vents on the flanks. The cone built by the eruptions had a volume of about 10 cubic kilometres (2.4 cu mi), and consisted of a mixture of basalt and andesitelavas.
