Alu (volcano)

Alu (volcano)

Alu is a system of volcanic fissures, located in Ethiopia. The fissures have produced silicic lava flows, and other fissures south of the volcano have formed huge youthful basaltic lava flows, which enlarge to the north as far as Lake Bakili. There is major fumarolic motion, which are located on frequent corresponding faults, some of which gave a lift up to 100 m.

Alu, Erta Ale, Tat Ali and other Ethiopian highlands are together known as the Danakil Alps.
