Photo Gallery

The Harra of Bal Haf volcanic field fills much of this NASA Space Shuttle image taken along the Gulf of Aden in southern Yemen (with north to the lower left). Dark-colored lava fields cover much of the volcanic field and create an irregular shoreline. One fresh-looking basaltic flow may be of historical age. Two large tuff cones are visible along the coast at the upper left, one of which is lake filled. A road cuts across the volcanic field from the town of Bal Haf at the lower right.
