Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Gedamsa
Gedamsa caldera is located along the Main Ethiopian Rift east of Lake Koka (left) and SW of the Wonji Sugar Estate Farm (upper right). The 7 x 9 km wide caldera (also spelled Gadamsa or Gedemsa) is cut by many NNE-SSW-trending regional faults of the Ethiopian Rift. A chain of rhyolitic lava flows and a large 1-km-wide crater occupy the caldera floor. A younger lava dome and flow is found on the SW flank of the volcano (lower left).
