Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12221

Lava flows form the southern flank of the Dofan volcanic massif, NW of a bend in the Hauash River, in the center of this December 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top, this image is approximately 20 km across). A darker lava flow above the center of this image erupted from a younger northern vent on the flank. Along with Fantale volcano to the SW, this area is one of the geothermal fields of Ethiopia.
