Background:

A group of cinder cones at Tosa Sucha on the north shore of Lake Chamo in the southern Ethiopian Rift has produced unvegetated olivine basaltic lava flows and may have been active as recently as historical time (Ebinger et al., 1993). The cones and flows on the eastern end of the Chamo Basin were erupted along NNE-trending fissures between Lake Chamo and Lake Abaya to the north. Some cones form islands in Lake Chamo.
