Mat Ala

Observations of Deformation

Volcano number:221105
Region:
Country:Ethiopia
Geodetic measurements?Yes
Deformation observation?No
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.
