Jabal el-Marha is an isolated ca. 2500-m-high, crescent-shaped tuff cone about 11 km south of the center of Sana'a, the capital city of Yemen. A very fresh-looking basaltic aa lava flow was erupted from this little-known volcano (Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World), although the age of the flow is not known. The flow traveled 1.8 km east from the cone over alluvial deposits on a broad plain that is partly covered with bombs and lapilli from the eruption.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Jabal el- Marha. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Jabal el- Marha 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 Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Jabal el- Marha.
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.
