Observations of Deformation
|Region:||Africa and Red Sea|
|Measurement method(s):||InSAR, 2005 - 2010|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
Mat Ala has a caldera at its summit. The volcao flanks are cut by numerous north-south trending faults, and fumarolic activity occurs along a fissure southwest of the volcano. Pagli et al. (2014), for the purposes of investigating regional velocity fields, looked at Envisat InSAR data that covered this volcano. They report no deformation.
