Chiracha is a rhyolitic stratovolcano located on the Wonji fault belt NE of Lake Abaya. All rift zone volcanoes are thought to be Pleistocene-to-Holocene in age, with the possible exception of Chiracha, which may be pre-Holocene. The nearby Holocene fissure basalts located to the west (Mohr and Wood 1976, WoldeGabriel 1987, pers. comm.), may be those of the northern Lake Abaya area of the Hobicha Caldera.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Chiracha. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Chiracha 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 Chiracha.
The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Chiracha.
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.
