Background

The Sodore volcanic field is an extensive 15 x 25 km wide group of Pleistocene and Holocene pyroclastic cones and lava flows that covers the floor of the eastern side of the Ethiopian Rift Valley, north of the town of Malkassa, between Boset-Bericha and Gedamsa volcanoes. The basaltic lava flows extend beyond the western flanks of Boset and Bericha volcanoes as far north as the village of Welenchiti.
