Manda Gargori

Volcano number:221127
Region:Africa and Red Sea
Country:Ethiopia
Geodetic measurements?Yes
Deformation observation?No
Measurement method(s):InSAR
Duration of observation:2005 - 2010
Inferred cause of deformation:
Characteristics of deformation:

This collection of fissure vents sits in the Manda Gargori rift, the youngest riting segment in this region. Pagli, et al. (2014), for the purposes of investigating regional velocity fields, has looked at Envisat InSAR data covering this volcano. They report no deformation. No historical activity has been officially reported, but human footprints in ashfall deposits suggests a historical-age eruption (Siebert and Simkin, 2002).
