A group of cinder cones at Tosa Sucha on the north shore of Lake Chamo in the southern Ethiopian Rift has produced unvegetated olivine basaltic lava flows and may have been active as recently as historical time (Ebinger et al., 1993). The cones and flows on the eastern end of the Chamo Basin were erupted along NNE-trending fissures between Lake Chamo and Lake Abaya to the north. Some cones form islands in Lake Chamo.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Tosa Sucha. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Tosa Sucha 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 Tosa Sucha.
|A group of cinder cones at Tosa Sucha lies near the northern shore of Lake Chamo, the greenish lake at the bottom-center portion of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top). The cones occupy a faulted area between Lake Chamo and the southern end of yellowish Lake Abaya. Some cones form islands in Lake Chamo. The unvegetated olivine basaltic lava flows have been estimated to perhaps have been active as recently as historical time.

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.
