Details for: Emuruangogolak
The broad Emuruangogolak shield volcano is situated at a narrow constriction in the East African Rift. The volcano is capped by a 5 x 3.5 km wide summit caldera, whose southern rim cuts across the center of the photo. The trachytic lava cone of Emuruepoli and its associated dome on the east are visible on the northern rim of the caldera. Since formation of the caldera about 38,000 years ago, trachytic and basaltic lava flows were erupted within the caldera and on the volcano's flanks; the latest eruption occurred less than a hundred years ago.
