VOLCANO POAS (VULKAN POAS), Kostarika.

VOLCAN POAS (VULKAN POAS) je aktivni vulkan u središnjem dijelu države Kostarike, visine oko 2700 metara. Od 1828.godine ovaj vulkan je eruptirao čak 39 puta. Najveću “slavu” stekao je 1910.godine kada je u zrak izbacio stub pare visok 6,4 kilometra i time postigao svjetski rekord u erupciji gejzira.Gejzirsko ponašanje smatra se znakom da se vulkan polako gasi, a do njega dolazi kad površinska voda otječe u tlo, gdje nailazi na izvor topline u obliku vruće stijene što se tali i polako hladi. 164 more words
