Photo Gallery

Jalua volcano, at the upper left, lies NW of the basaltic lava flow field that extends from Alid volcano (the light-colored volcano at the lower left capped by a single small cloud) and is the northernmost volcano in Ethiopia. Jalua contains a large, central volcanotectonic depression that is open to the Zula Gulf, just visible at the extreme upper left. No historical eruptions are known from Jalua, although fumarolic activity continues on its western flank.
