Details for: Assab Volcanic Field
The long chain of pyroclastic cones and lava flows extending East-West across this Landsat image is the Assab volcanic field near the Red Sea coast in southern Eritrea. This spectacular range of basaltic cinder cones and associated lava flows covers a 55 x 90 km area, and flows reached the Red Sea along a broad front. The vents of the Assab volcanic field were constructed along a broad E-W-trending line that extends to the coastal city of Assab, out of view to right.
