The dark aa lava flow in the foreground was produced during an eruption on the Arkdoukôba Rift November 7-14, 1978. This photo from the SW looks across the rift during the eruption and shows one of the regional NW-SE-trending faults of the rift in the background. Lava flows from the 1978 eruption covered about 3 km2 of the rift floor, primarily on the north side of the eruptive fissure.
