Abstract: Estimates of pyroclastic flow emplacement temperatures in the Cerro Galàn ignimbrite and Toconquis Group ignimbrites and flow directions were determined using thermal remanent magnetization (TRM) of lithic clasts embedded within the deposits and the anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility, respectively. These ignimbrites belong to the Cerro Galàn volcanic system, one of the largest calderas in the world, in the Puna plateau, NW Argentina. Temperature estimates for the 2.16 ± 0.16 Ma Cerro Gal
