appears to have collapsed in a non-explosive manner. The age of collapse is not yet known, but since the caldera formed, volcanic activity has continued along the surrounding ring faults which have produced lava flows and lava domes , increasing the elevation of the caldera wall

Chacaltaya
CHACALTAYA (Mollo language for "bridge of winds" or "winds meeting point", Aymara for "cold road" ) is a mountain in the Cordillera Real , one of the mountain ranges of the Cordillera Oriental , itself a range of the Bolivian Andes
Andes
. Its elevation is 5,421 meters (17,785 ft). Chacaltaya's glacier — which was as old as 18,000 years — had an area of 0.22 km2 (0.085 sq mi) in 1940, which had been reduced to 0.01 km2 (0.0039 sq mi) in 2007 and was completely gone by 2009. Half of the meltdown, as measured by volume, took place before 1980. The final meltdown after 1980, due to missing precipitation and the warm phase of El Niño, resulted in the glacier's disappearance in 2009. The glacier was formerly one of the highest in South America

Patagonia
and the westernmost parts of Argentine Patagonia during the Quaternary glaciations . Today, with its glaciers largely in retreat and only an area of 4,200 km2 (1,600 sq mi), it is still the second largest continuous mass of ice outside of the polar regions . Survival is based on its elevation (1,100 to 1,500 m (3,600 to 4,900 ft)), favorable terrain and a cool, moist, marine climate

Jorge Montt Glacier
JORGE MONTT GLACIER is a tidewater glacier located in the Aisén Region of Chile
Chile
, south of the town of Caleta Tortel . It lies at the north end of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field , within Bernardo O\'Higgins National Park . The mouth of Pascua River is located in the vicinity of the glacier calving front. The total drainage area of the glacier is about 510 km2 (200 sq mi). The glacier’s ice is thinning most at low elevations, where air temperature is the highest. Ice thinning between 1975 and 2000 averaged 3.3 m (11 ft) per year over the entire glacier, and reached 18 m (59 ft) per year at the lowest elevations. The glacier calving front experienced a major retreat of 8.5 km (5.3 mi) in those 25 years as a result of rapid thinning. The glacier calves off icebergs into the Baker Channel
