Background:

The densely forested Tepi basaltic shield volcano, morphologically unmodified in a region of high rainfall, is capped by prominent cinder cones and small craters. Three satellitic centers are located along an E-W line north of the main shield, whose 2728-m-high summit forms Ethiopia's highest Holocene volcano. Lava flows have traveled down pre-existing valleys. Tepi lies at the northern end of the Turkana rift, about 300 km west of the center of the main Ethiopian rift and was constructed along a zone of ENE-trending faults that extends in line with the Gulf of Aden. Tepi has associated active hot springs and was considered by Davidson (1983) to be of probable Holocene age.
