Vanuatu maggio 2009: escursione al cratere Marum

Quando siamo arrivati sul Ambrym, abbiamo ricevuto la notizia di un nuovo lago di lava all'interno di uno delle aperture nel cratere Marum. Nonostante molto cattivo tempo, siamo riusciti ad arrivare al bordo del cratere e prendere un buon scorci sul lago di lava bollente, circa 20 m di larghezza, sotto i nostri piedi.

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)
