Volcanic monitoring in Yemen

nn

I’m always pleased to see more countries setting up volcanic monitoring networks. Well, I suppose I’m pleased when it is a volcanically-active country, I mean, Switzerland setting up one might be a little silly, but anyway. After last year’s eruption of Jebel At Tair in the Red Sea, we were reminded that there are potentially active volcanoes in/near Arabian Peninsula countries like Yemen, so with the help of the¬†Germany-Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System, Yemen is setting up their own network to monitor volcanoes in the region. Little in the way of details were offered, but at least it is a start in monitoring a fairly volcanically active part of the world related to the Red Sea/East African rifting.
