Vanuatu mayo de 2009: excursión al cráter Marum

Cuando llegamos el Ambrym, tenemos noticias de un nuevo lago de lava dentro de uno de los orificios de ventilación en cráter Marum. A pesar de muy mal tiempo, logramos llegar hasta el borde del cráter y coger un buen atisbos del lago de lava hirviendo, alrededor de 20 m de ancho, debajo de nuestros pies.

To get to the rim of Marum, we first have to circle it and descend a bit again, following a ridge in a moon-like landscape of ash, erosion gullies and (fortunately not recent) volcanic blocks and bombs.  (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

Finally, we're there! Despite the fog and light rain (still quite good conditions for Ambrym standards!), we can catch first glimpses of the boiling lava lake beneath the observation position. Pieter takes some photos. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
