Photo Gallery


Gabillema is a rhyolitic stratovolcano along the axis of the Addado graben. The summit of the volcano lies below and to the left of the center of this Landsat image. Rhyolitic lava domes are located on the flanks of the volcano, and a 5 x 17 km basaltic lava field that covers the Ado Bad (Ado Lake) Plain north of the volcano originated from a broad area of fissure vents and spatter cones on the north side of Gabillema volcano.
