The Global Volcanism Program has no activity reports for Bilate River Field.
The Global Volcanism Program has no Weekly Reports available for Bilate River Field.
The Global Volcanism Program has no Bulletin Reports available for Bilate River Field.
The Bilate River basin west of Lake Awasa contains a group of lake-filled maars and tuff rings of Pleistocene and probable Holocene age (WoldeGabriel 1987, pers. comm.). Active hot springs and fumaroles are located in this area.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Bilate River Field. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Bilate River Field page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

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.
