The Hawaiian-type Asie shield volcano is the youngest and NE-most of a group of en echelon shields east of Lake Turkana. Asie was constructed during the Pliocene and Pleistocene; late-stage activity formed a series of cones and maars, with the last eruptions occurring about 0.42 million years ago on the NW flank. (Charsley 1987a).
