Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

Photo Gallery


The densely forested Tepi basaltic shield volcano lies about 300 km west of the Ethiopian Rift in southern Ethiopia. A small crater near the center of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top) is one of many satellite features on this broad volcano, whose 2728-m-high summit forms Ethiopia's highest Holocene volcano. Lava flows have traveled down pre-existing valleys. Active hot springs are found on Tepi, Ethiopia's highest Holocene volcano. The smoke plume at the right is from a vegetation fire.
