Ol Doinyo Eburru

Volcano number:222080
Region:Africa and Red Sea
Geodetic measurements?Yes
Deformation observation?No
Measurement method(s):InSAR, No measurements
Duration of observation:2004 - 2007
Inferred cause of deformation:
Characteristics of deformation:

An InSAR study of volcanoes in the Kenyan Rift looked at deformation at Ol Doinyo Eburru between 2004 -2007 using ALOS data. Ol Doinyo Eburru, however, was consistently incoherent, and as such no information on deformation at this volcano can be reported (Robertson, 2015).
