Observations of Deformation
|Region:||Middle East and Indian Ocean|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
Karthala volcano has a permanent lava lake and experienced a sequence of eruptions in April 2005, Nov 2005, May 2006 and Jan 2007. The first 3 took place at the Choungou Chahale crater, which typically contains either a water or lava lake; the last formed a new pit crater to the north (Biggs et al., 2014).
