Volcano number: 222051
Region: Africa and Red Sea
Country: Kenya
Geodetic measurements? Yes
Deformation observation? No
Measurement method(s): InSAR
Duration of observation: 2003 - 2010
Inferred cause of deformation: []
Characteristics of deformation:

An InSAR study of volcanoes in the Kenyan Rift looked at deformation at Emuruangogolak between 2003 – 2010 using ALOS data. No deformation was reported above the detection threshold of 0.37 cm/yr (Robertson, 2015).
