Abstract

In November 1978 a telluric crisis was recorded in the Republic of Djibouti, in connection with the opening of new distensive fractures in the Asal graben, the southernmost axis of the seafloor spreading in Afar. A short fissure eruption (7-14November1978) developed which allowed interesting observations of ridge-type volcanism and gas composition, and accurate measurement of seafloor spreading in Afar for the first time.
