Image Caption:
Detail of Southern Coasts of the Red Sea--Afar Depression The
landscape is one of volcanoes and numerous parallel faults in la-
vas. The Afar is one of the few places on Earth where sea-floor
spreading--as on the mid-Atlantic Ridge where new sea-floor crust
is actively being generated--can be observed on land. The major
volcanic complex of Erte Ale (arrow) is prominent in both photo-
graphs. (61C-35-024)
