Details for: Ardoukoba
The Ardouk├┤ba (Asal) Rift in the center of the photo lies in Djibouti and trends NW from the Red Sea. Ardoukoba contains a broad area of youthful fissure vents between Lake Asal (bounded by white saline deposits at the left) and the Ghoubbat al Kharab gulf (upper right). The most recent lava flows are younger than lake sediments deposited 5300 years ago. The Ardouk├┤ba fissure erupted in 1978, producing a small cinder cone and lava flows that covered part of the rift floor near the Red Sea.
