Details for: Ayelu
Ayelu is the westernmost and older of two volcanoes at the southern end of the Danakil depression. The vegetated volcano is cut by prominent regional faults. Hot springs occur on its W flank. Extensive young basaltic lava flows cover the flanks of Adwa volcano and overlap a sedimentary plain to the SE. Photo by Giday Wolde-Gabriel (Los Alamos National Laboratory).
