Yangudi volcano, lying in the Addado graben of the northern Ethiopian rift, is a complex rhyolitic stratovolcano with an elliptical summit caldera. A trachytic lava flow originating in the caldera covers part of the southern flank of Yangudi, also known as Angudi, Jangudi, or Langudi. Rhyolitic obsidian domes on the NW flank are surrounded by younger basaltic lava flows. Very recent scoria cones and lava flows are located south of Yangudi along the eastern graben faults.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Yangudi. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Yangudi page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

|Yangudi volcano is a complex rhyolitic stratovolcano with an elliptical summit caldera that lies near the center of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top). Very recent scoria cones and lava flows form the dark-colored areas south and north of Yangudi along graben faults. Numerous NNE-SSW-trending faults parallel the Ethiopian Rift.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
