A preliminary note on some unusual explosion-collapse craters, Quemado basalt field, Catron County, New Mexico
Jerry M. Hoffer and L. LeRoy Corbitt

Abstract:

A series of unusual volcanic craters which show the results of explosion followed by collapse have been identified at the northern end of the late Cenozoic Quemado basalt field. The basalt field is part of the Jemez lineament that strikes northeastelry across southern Arizona into northern New Mexico. Abundant in the field are cinder and spatter cones and lava flows of olivine basalt.
