Photo Gallery

The fissure-controlled Korath Range is an isolated group of tuff cones and lava flows in southern Ethiopia that were erupted along the Turkana Rift. The Korath Range tuff cones issued many lava flows that traveled up to about 5 km, forming lobate margins, most prominently on the western flanks of the massif. The apparent youngest flow issued from the central crater and flowed through a breach in its rim.
