Using lake sediment cores to improve records of volcanism at Aluto volcano in the main Ethiopian rift

Abstract:

Aluto is a silicic volcano in central Ethiopia, flanked by two large population centers and home to an expanding geothermal power plant. Here we present data from two lake sediment cores sampled 12 km and 25 km from the volcano, which record at least 24 distinct eruptions in the Holocene. Tephra layers from the two cores are correlated using a variety of techniques, including major and trace element geochemistry as well as textural and morphological features from SEM‐BSE imaging. The purpose ...
