Background:

The small Holocene Kurub shield volcano, also known as Kurub Koma, Kurub Koba, or Curub, lies in the Saha Plain, SE of the Manda Hararo complex in the South Danakil region. The easternmost lava flow of Kurub volcano was potassium-argon dated at about 0.3 million years. Wind-blown sand fills the summit crater of the very recent basaltic volcano. Initial subaqueous activity occurred along NNW-trending fissures. Fumarolic activity observed in the 1930s was not seen during field work in the 1970s.
