Ale Bagu

Observations of Deformation

Volcano number:221090
Geodetic measurements?Yes
Deformation observation?No
Measurement method(s):InSAR
Duration of observation:1996-1997, 2005 - 2010
Characteristics of deformation:

Atzori et al (1999) processed ERS 1/2 InSAR data from 1996-1997 to look at Erta Ale, but report no deformation. In addition, Pagli, et al. (2014), for the purposes of investigating regional velocity fields, has looked at Envisat InSAR data (2005 – 2010) covering this volcano. They also report no deformation.
