Groppo volcano is a small 930-m-high alkali rhyolitic stratovolcano located in the western Afar near the Ethiopian escarpment, NE of Dessye. The volcano was considered to have been active during the past 2000 years (IAVCEI, 1973).

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Groppo. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Groppo page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Groppo.

The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Groppo.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
