Ruapehu (North Island): (5 Oct) The volcanic tremor at the volcano continues at low levels over the past 3 months.
The Crater Lake (Te Wai ā-moe) temperature has decreased from around 26 °C in early July to fluctuate between 21 and 25 °C in August and September. The Current lake temperature is 23 °C. This is consistent with heat flow into the lake of about 150-200 MW. Available analyses of water samples from Crater Lake have shown no changes in the lake's chemistry. This indicates that there has been no evidence of chemical interaction between magma and the hydrothermal system controlling the composition, level, and temperature of the Crater Lake.
