Eruptive History


The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Hertali. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Hertali page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

Deformation History


There is data available for 2 deformation periods. Expand each entry for additional details.

Photo Gallery


The dark-colored area cutting across the center of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top) is a series of basaltic lava flows erupted from fissure vents at Hertali. These flows lie at the south end of the Awash Plain, about 50 km NNE of Dofen volcano. The youthful morphology of the flows suggest a late Pleistocene to Holocene age. Numerous NNE-SSW-trending fissures of the Ethiopian Rift prominently cut across both sides of the rift.
