Abstract

Abstract Surge-type deposits mantling a volcanic cone (Fossa Felci) derive from an adjacent eruptive center, not from the volcano itself. Erosional and depositional evidence of the surge mechanism is presented. The topographic obstacle supposed to be overtopped by the surges was over 600 m high.
