Recommended Posts

GeoNet has issued a volcanic alert bulletin at Mt Ruapehu after an increasing level of gas emissions and sustained high lake temperature has been recorded. 

The recent fine weather has allowed GeoNet to make airborne gas measurements over the central North Island volcano.

The current lake temperature is 37C, which is near the top of the usual range and has been sustained for two months.

"Higher than usual temperatures and high gas fluxes like we have now are common in the open vent situation and have been observed in the past outside eruptive periods," the scientists say.
