Vanuatu mei 2009: excursie naar Marum krater

Toen we op Ambrym aankwamen, kregen we nieuws van een nieuwe lava meer binnen één van de openingen in Marum krater. Ondanks heel slecht weer weten we te krijgen tot de krater rand en een goede glimp van het kokend lava meer, ongeveer 20 m breed, onder onze voeten te vangen.

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)
