Volcano number:221106
Region:
Country:Ethiopia
Geodetic measurements?Yes
Deformation observation?No
Measurement method(s):InSAR
Duration of observation:2005 - 2010
Inferred cause(s) of deformation:Magmatic
Characteristics of deformation:

Tat Ali is a Holocene shield volcano east of Lake Afrera. NNW-SSE-trending fissures cutting the volcano have fed basaltic lava flows, but not in recent times. Pagli et al. (2014), for the purposes of investigating regional velocity fields, have looked at Envisat InSAR data covering this volcano. They report no deformation between 2005 and 2010.
