Hertali is a basaltic fissure vent that fed lava flows at the south end of the Awash plain, about 50 km NNE of Dofen volcano. Hertali was considered by Mohr and Wood (1976) to have been active during the late Pleistocene to Holocene on the basis of its youthful-looking morphology.
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).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.
|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.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
