Background:

Ayelu is a vegetated rhyolitic stratovolcano, located south of the Asbahri plain in the southern Afar region. On its eastern side, 2145-m-high Ayelu is cut by regional faults and is overlain by ignimbrites erupted from Adwa volcano immediately to the east. Ayelu was constructed by a series of thick rhyolitic lava flows, creating a higher and steeper-sided volcano than its neighbor Adwa. Hot springs are located on the western flank of Ayelu.
