Background:

Jalua, the northernmost volcano in the Eritrea/Ethiopia area, occupies an isolated location in the arid Danakil depression. It contains a large, central volcanotectonic depression that is open to the Zula Gulf and an isolated central cone. Jalua lies NW of basaltic lava flows of the Alid graben and south of the Zula Gulf. No historical eruptions are known, although fumarolic activity continues on its western flank. The nomenclature of volcanic features in the Afar region reflects that of the two dominant ethnic groups, the Afar (on the Ethiopian side) and the Issas (in the SE Afar depression). Each group has their own names for physiographic features, and consequently more than one name may apply to the same feature. A similar situation occurs throughout Ethiopia, where names often reflect local politics.
