Description

The volcanic explosion crater of Dallol in the Danakil Depresseion in Nothern Ethiopia. The Dallol crater was formed during a phreatic eruption in 1926. This crater is known as the lowest subaerial vulcanic vents in the world. The surreal colours are caused by green acid ponds and iron oxides and sulfur.

The Afar Depression (or Danakil Depression) in the border-triangle between Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti is one of the most remote and most extreme regions of the world - it is the lowest point in Africa (- 155 metres/-550 ft below sea level) and one of the hottest places on Earth.

The Danakil/Afar Depression is the product of a tectonic triple junction, where the spreading ridges that form the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden emerge on land and meet the East African Rift. Here the Earth's crust is slowly rifting apart at a rate of 1–2 centimetres (0.3–0.8 in) per year.

Erta ale is ond of the most dangerous places on earth - the lat major eruptions took place in September 2005, August 2007 and November 2008.
