Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-11167

These two closely-spaced volcanic centers, Boset (Boseti-Gudda) and Bericha (Boseti-Bericcia) are located in the Ethiopian Rift valley. Boset, the SSW center (also known as Gudda), is below and to the left of the center of this Landsat image, while the NNE center, Bericha, lies just above the center of the image. Fissures connecting the two have erupted basaltic lava flows. NASA Landsat image, 1999 (courtesy of Hawaii Synergy Project, Univ. of Hawaii Institute of Geophysics & Planetology).
