Summary:Surge-type deposits mantling a volcanic cone (Fossa Felci) were derived from an adjacent eruptive centre, not from the volcano itself. Erosional and depositional evidence of the surge mechanism is presented. The topographic obstacle considered to have been overtopped by the surges was >600 m high. [R.A.H.]
