The Global Volcanism Program has no activity reports for Segererua Plateau.
The Global Volcanism Program has no Weekly Reports available for Segererua Plateau.
The Global Volcanism Program has no Bulletin Reports available for Segererua Plateau.
A large number of late-Pleistocene to Holocene basaltic cones, lava flows, and maars occur along a roughly 50-km-long NE-SW trend on the Segererua and Rusarus Plateaus and areas to the SW. This volcanic region is located well east of the East African Rift, south of the massive Marsabit shield volcano. The two plateaus host most of the vents and are bounded by the Milgis River on the north and the Merille River to the south. Other vents lie to the SW, east of the Kauro River, and another large area of basaltic lava flows lies west of the Segererua and Rusaurus Platueas.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Segererua Plateau. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Segererua Plateau 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 Segererua Plateau.
|The Segererua and Rusarus Plateaus, right of the center of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top) contain a large number of late-Pleistocene to Holocene basaltic cones, lava flows, and maars. The Milgris River cuts across the top of the image, and Merille River lies just below the center of the image. Other vents lie east of the Kauro River (bottom center). Plateau basalts are also visible at the right-center.

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.
