Pumice cone
Volcanic cones are among the simplest volcanic landforms. They are built by ejecta from a volcanic vent, piling up around the vent in the shape of a cone with a central crater. Volcanic cones are of different types, depending upon the nature and size of the fragments ejected during the eruption. Types of volcanic cone include stratocones, spatter cones, ash cones, tuff cones, and cinder cones.

Southern Cone Travel: Dust My Pumice: a Puyehue Update
In its weekly update, the Smithsonian Institution’s Global Volcanism Program has given the most succinct summary yet of the eruption at Chile’s Puyehue-Cordón Caulle Volcanic Complex, which began on Saturday and continues, with changing winds, to blow ash and pumice into Argentina even over Buenos Aires and into the Atlantic Ocean. The striking NASA photograph below shows the plume from the volcano as it blew southeast from the caldera toward the city of San Carlos de Bariloche - as this is cropped from a larger image, no scale appears, but it stretches about 75 km from northwest to southeast.
