|Region:||Africa and Red Sea|
|Duration of observation:||2003 - 2010|
|Inferred cause of deformation:|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
An InSAR study of volcanoes in the Kenyan Rift looked at deformation at Emuruangogolak between 2003 – 2010 using ALOS data. No deformation was reported above the detection threshold of 0.37 cm/yr (Robertson, 2015).

Emuruangogolak is a broad shield volcano. The volcano has a 5 x 3.5 km wide summit caldera, whose southern rim can be seen here. The caldera was thought to form 38,000 years ago, and its most recent eruption less than a hundred years ago. Photo by Martin Smith, 1993 (copyright British Geological Survey, NERC).
