The NASA Earth Observatory has just published some particularly fascinating volcano imagery in its ‘natural hazards’ category: satellite images of the remarkable Tanzanian volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai, showing the changes that have occurred at the summit of the volcano following the explosive eruptions of 2007-8. The Earth Observatory has showcased two images, one from July 2004 (detail on the left, above) and the other from September 2009 (on the right). Ol Doinyo Lengai is unique on Earth because of its low-temperature natrocarbonatite lavas.
