The lava lake of Erta Ale seen in late Dec 2015 (image: Enku Mulugheta)
The level of the active lava lake in the volcano's southern pit crater of the summit caldera has sunk a bit again after its last overflow in mid January, but remains highly agitated. Our expedition leader Enku who was there with a small group from 12-15 February reported:
"Erta Ale is going down again to 5- 7 Meters from the rim of the caldera, but the activity is getting very wild at this time and it was very hard to walk on the the recently crusted flow.
The last flow went in every direction from the crater and covered the whole rim with fresh crust of gaseous basaltic pahoehoe lava.

when the lava lake last overflowed. ...
