Background:

Ale Bagu, also known as Ummuna, is an elongated, 1031-m-high stratovolcano located SW of Erta Ale volcano. It is the highest of the Erta Ale Range volcanoes and is located west of the axis of the range. In contrast to other volcanoes of the Erta Ale Range, Ale Bagu is mantled by basaltic pyroclastic rocks. Summit craters are elongated along a NNW-SSE trend. The main crater is a steep-walled, 750 x 450 m depression occupied by a steep-sided lava cone that has fed trachytic lava flows over the crater floor. Silicic lavas from the axial regional fissure extend to the NW and SE.
