After Indonesia, Chile has the second largest and most active volcanic chain on Earth. [1] Along the continental Chilean territory, there are at least two thousand volcanoes; [1] [2] [3] of them , five hundred are considered "geologically active", [1] of which sixty have an historical eruptive record in the last 450 years, with a total of approximately three hundred eruptions in that period. [4] [n 1] the 200 historically active volcanoes of the Andes mountain range, 36 (18%) are in Chile. [6]

Of the Chilean volcanoes, forty-three are monitored by the National Volcanic Surveillance Network of the National Geology and Mining Service of Chile (Sernageomin). [7] According to a study by that agency, the ten most dangerous volcanoes in Chile are: [8] Villarrica, Llaima, Calbuco, Chaitén, Láscar, Michinmahuida, Nevados de Chillán, Lonquimay, Copahue and Azul-Quizapú.
