Erta Ale

Erta Ale is 613 metres (2,011 ft) high, with one or sometimes two active lava lakes at the summit which occasionally overflow on the south side of the volcano.[1] It is notable for holding the longest-existing lava lake, present since the early years of the twentieth century (1906). Volcanoes with lava lakes are very rare: there are only eight in the world.Erta Ale means "smoking mountain" in the local Afar language and its southernmost pit is known locally as "the gateway to Hell". In 2009, it was mapped by a team from the BBC using three-dimensional laser techniques,[5] in order for the mapping team to maintain a distance and avoid the lakes' searingly hot temperatures. which is a triple junction setting whose movements are resulting in the formation of a pull-apart basin or rift. The volcano comprises mainly mafic material which has been brought up to the surface caused by unroofing of the mantle due to this rift formation. There was a major eruption on 25 September 2005 which killed 250 head of livestock and forced thousands of nearby residents to flee.[6] There was further lava flow in August 2007, forcing the evacuation of hundreds and leaving two missing.[7] An eruption on 4 November 2008 was reported by scientists at Addis Ababa University.[8] Another eruption was reported in January 2017.
