Ash-rich vulcanian-type explosions producing tall ash plumes, were often accompanied by loud bangs. Such powerful explosions seemed to occur in sets of 5-10 events, usually spaced 3-5 minutes, approximately every 6-10 hrs during our observation time from 4-8 June 09.  (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

Since the more active 2010 period where there were also green acid ponds at Dallol, the area had slowly become smaller and most of the green acids pond disappeared. This was probably linked to the unusual 4 years of no direct rain in the area. The much needed rainshowers at the end of 2015- start of 2016 brought back the green acid ponds and since then the colourful active Dallol hydrothermal fields have grown significantly.
