Observations of Deformation
|Region:||Africa and Red Sea|
|Measurement method(s):||No measurements|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
No geodetic measurements have ever been made at the Atakor Volcanic Field, a 2150 sq km volcanic (mostly basaltic) field. The most recent eruption is thought to be around 10,000 years ago, and some fumarolic and seismic activity has been recorded in historical time.
