The Barrier

Observations of Deformation

Volcano number:222030
Geodetic measurements?Yes
Deformation observation?No
Measurement method(s):InSAR
Duration of observation:2003 - 2010
Characteristics of deformation:

An InSAR study of volcanoes in the Kenyan Rift looked at deformation at The Barrier between 2003 – 2010 using ALOS data. No deformation was reported above the detection threshold of 0.42 cm/yr (Robertson, 2015).
