Ale Bagu

Volcano number:221090
Region:Africa and Red Sea
Country:Ethiopia
Geodetic measurements?Yes
Deformation observation?No
Measurement method(s):InSAR
Duration of observation:1996-1997, 2005 - 2010
Inferred cause of deformation:
Characteristics of deformation:

Atzori et al (1999) processed ERS 1/2 InSAR data from 1996-1997 to look at Erta Ale, but report no deformation. In addition, Pagli, et al. (2014), for the purposes of investigating regional velocity fields, has looked at Envisat InSAR data (2005 – 2010) covering this volcano. They also report no deformation.
