Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12220
The dark rock down the center of this 26 October 2019 Sentinel-2 satellite image is a series of lava flows erupted from Hertali, located at the southern end of the Awash Plain and about 50 km NNE of Dofan volcano (N is at the top; this image is approximately 32 km across). Numerous NNE-SSW-trending faults of the Ethiopian Rift are visible along both sides of the flow.
