Справочная информация

The broad, well-vegetated edifice of Poás has three craters in a N-S line. The 2708-m-high basaltic-to-dacitic complex stratovolcano is cut by a N-S-trending fissure that extends to the lower northern flank, where a parasite volcano (the Congo stratovolcano) and several explosion craters, or maars, most of them lake-filled, have been created.
Poás has two summit crater lakes. The southermost one, Botos, is cold, clear has not eruptied for about 7500 years. The other crater lake is geothermally heated and -after Kawah Ijen in Indonesia - is probably the world's second most acidic natural lake. Its pH is near zero.
