Costa Rica News – After several months of relative calm, the Poas Volcano is acting up again, with a small groundwater and ash discharge.
Volcanologists Gino González and Yemerith Alpízar of Volcanes Sin Fronteras (Volcanos Without Borders) visited the colossus over the weekend and reported the reactivation after the volcano had remained relatively calm for eight months. A similar activity was recorded in 2013.
Specialists say theywere in the southwestern sector of the colossal crater where they found that the lagoon increased its temperature by 3 degrees Celsius compared to last month. The lagoon temperature is now 38 Celsius (100 Fahrenheit).
They also found that the lake has a gray color with sulfur floating in several sectors, with very acidic gases that forced the use of special masks. For
