Observations of Deformation
|Region:||Africa and Red Sea|
|Duration of observation:||2005 - 2010|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
Pagli, et al. (2014), for the purposes of investigating regional velocity fields, has looked at Envisat InSAR data covering this volcano. They report no deformation associated with these north-west trending fissures or pyroclastic cones. The most recent confirmed eruption, which consisted of lava flows, was in 1928 or 1929 (Siebert and Simkin, 2002).
