|Region:||Africa and Red Sea|
|Duration of observation:||2002 - 2010|
|Inferred cause of deformation:|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
Pagli, et al. (2014), for the purposes of investigating regional velocity fields, has looked at Envisat InSAR data covering this volcano. They do not mention any deformation between 2005 – 2010. In contrast however, Bridges et al., (2011) report ~ 3 cm of inflation between 2007 – 2008.
