Background:

Hobicha Caldera, north of Lake Abaya, is a large caldera of Pleistocene age. Fissures cutting the SE margin of the caldera produced numerous pyroclastic cones of Pleistocene-to-Holocene age (WoldeGabriel 1987, pers. comm.). This area of young basaltic volcanism is also referred to as the Northern Lake Abaya volcanic field.
