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.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Sodore. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Sodore 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 Sodore.
|The Sodore volcanic field is an extensive 15 x 25 km wide group of Pleistocene and Holocene pyroclastic cones and lava flows that occupies the floor of the Ethiopian Rift Valley. The basaltic flows in this Landsat image are located NE of the Wonji Sugar Estate Farm (the fields at the lower left) and SW of the Boset-Bericha volcanic complex, which produced the lava flows seen at the upper right. The flows also cover an area west of the Boset-Bericha complex.
