Erta Ale volcano, Ethiopia - the lava lake in Dec 2013

One of the participants of our latest Expedition to Erta Ale & Dallol, Domini Voegtli from Switzerland, kindly shared the following pictures with us. They show that the level of Erta Ale's active lava lake in the south pit crater has risen considerably during recent months.
