This last one is in a fraction of around 5% of the total ash erupted, that is to say, the presence of magma in the eruptions is confirmed, with typical characteristics of the contact of the water with the magma, reason why they are called Phreatomagmatic eruptions that had not occurred in the Poás volcano since 1955.” (group Volcanes Sin Fronteras, transl. by Google)
