  1. Thank you agimarc! Another interesting bit I found mentioned HERE is that the volcanoes on the archipelago are fed by 4 different types of lava. Wolf’s lavas belong to the WD type (Wolf Darwin) type and are unique in the Pacific in that they have a unique Pb ratio and rather resemble material from an Indian Ocean Ridge system. The WD lava region is located along the northern side of the archipelago and dilutes to the east and south (i.e. at the edges it mixes with the other lava types by convection and spreading movements).

  2. If I understand the translations right there are now two lava lakes at the bottom of Masaya’s Santiago crater. A video was tweeted today of lava gushing down below:
