The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Tarso Tousside. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Tarso Tousside page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

Dark lava flows radiate from Toussidé volcano (center), the second highest peak of the Tibesti Range in Chad. This Space Shuttle image of the Tarso Toussidé volcanic massif has north to the bottom. Toussidé stratovolcano was constructed at the western end of the large Pleistocene ignimbritic caldera of Yirrigue, whose scarp is seen left of Toussidé. The smaller 8-km-wide caldera of Trou au Natron cuts the SE rim of Yirrigue caldera. Ehi Timi (lower center) and Ehi Sosso (left center) volcanoes are located on the flanks of the massif.

A dramatic Space Shuttle image shows dark lava flows radiating from Toussidé volcano and spreading across the desert floor. Light-colored fumarolically altered areas can be seen at the volcano's 3265-m-high summit, the second highest peak of the Tibesti Range in Chad. Toussidé stratovolcano was constructed at the western end of the large Pleistocene ignimbritic caldera of Yirrigue, whose eastern scarp is seen right of Toussidé. The smaller 1000-m-deep, 8-km-wide Trou au Natron caldera (lower right) cuts the SE rim of Yirrigue caldera.
