Lava lake on Erta Ale volcano (613 m)
Lava lake on Erta Ale volcano (613 m). Erta Ale is a continuously active basaltic shield volcano in the Afar Region and is the most active volcano in Ethiopia. Erta Ale has one or sometimes two active lava lakes at the summit which occasionally overflow on the south side of the volcano. Erta Ale is centred over the East African Rift system and comprises mainly Mafic material which has been brought up to the surface caused by unroofing of the mantle due to this rift formation.
