Biggs et al. (2011) processed InSAR data from Tullu Moje (called Tulla Moje within Biggs et al. (2011)) between 1997-2000 and 2003-2010. They found no evidence of surface deformation until 2009-2010, but no deformation mechanism is given.

Interferograms used in the analysis of deformation. Each fringe represents 2.8 cm of displacement in the satellite line-of-sight (Biggs et al., 2011), no deformation is observed at this volcano. The summit of the volcano is shown by a black dot, as reported by the Smithsonian Database (Siebert and Simkin, 2002).
