Photo Gallery


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.
