Corbetti, Ethiopia


Volcanism in Ethiopia is associated with the East African Rift, particularly in the Afar region in the north east of the country. Research funded by or associated with CRITMAG is focussed on two volcanoes within the Rift:

  • Dabbahu, located in the Afar depression
  • Corbetti, in the Main Ethiopian Rift
