Rota Volcano Photos

stratovolcano 832 m / 2,730 ft
Nicaragua, 12.55°N / -86.75°W
The smooth crust of the lake is broken into plates, which are moving against or away from each other, simulating plate tectonics. Above, a miniature mid-ocean spreading zone can be seen where two larger pieces of crust are moving away from each other. Even miniature transform faults and sheer zones due to differential and rotational movements can be seen. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

Violent ash emissions at the summit vents. The northwestern flank vents, which had been protagonists in the past days have become less active, but continue to show continuous spattering and effuse another lava flow further  away now. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

The westernmost (left) vent (S1) has produced an ash-rich eruption; glowing spatter still lies around this vent, which today was not often active (but becomes protagonist a few days later). Seconds later, a dry strombolian eruption occurred from the NE vent (right). (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

A larger breakout occurs along a 5 meter wide section of the lava flow margin. In such cases, the motion is strong enough to tilt and rotate pieces of crust into different positions. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
