Observations of Deformation
|Region:||Africa and Red Sea|
|Duration of observation:||2002 - 2012|
|Inferred cause(s) of deformation:||Magmatic, Surface deposits|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
Nyamuragira is a broad, highly active, shield volcano, that has been the focus of some InSAR studies. A long list of eruption dates can be found on the Smithsonian GVP website, most of which are flank eruptions.
During the January 2010 11 cm eastward co-eruptive displacement to the east of the volcano was observed.
Samsonov and d’Oreye (2012) describe deformation at several points around the volcano at several different times, and, if the reader is interested, they are directed there for more detail and clarification on locations.
