Erta Ale Images

Tom Pfieffer from Volcano Discovery.com (http://www.volcanodiscovery.com/) has just come back from an expedition to Erta Ale!erta_ale_i39795.jpg

 

He reports that "Erta Ale volcano in Ethiopia recently became very active as we found out on our last expedition, when we stayed on the volcano from 25-28 Nov.

The lava lake in the south crater had largely filled up the crater with and overflows started to invade the caldera, completely reshaping the area!"
