Background:

The silicic Bora and Bericcio pumice cones, among the most youthful volcanoes of the Ethiopian Rift valley, rise 350-500 m above the floor of the rift. Bora has a 1.5-km-wide summit crater, and the more conical Bericcio is capped by a small summit crater and has a 1-km-wide crater on its south flank. Small silicic pyroclastic cones are found on the east flanks of both Bora and Bericcio. All volcanic products in this area are considered to be Holocene in age. Vigorous fumarolic activity continues at Bora-Bericcio.
