Background:

The Gufa volcanic field, located along the Eritrea/Djibouti border, consists of a group of basaltic scoria cones and lava flows aligned in an E-W direction NE of the large Mousa Alli stratovolcano. A second E-W-trending chain of cones is located to the north of the principal chain, most of which lies in Eritrea, and fed long lava flows that descend to the north, in the direction of the Red Sea.
