Melquiades Alvarez discovered an unexpected lagoon inside the Ubinas volcano in Peru.
This mysterious lake has formed as a result of recent rainfall in the entire area around this massif, according to the scientist.
This is the first time since the beginning of the current eruptive phase of the Ubinas Volcano (in September 2013), that such a large water accumulation is observed at the base of the main crater.
This small lagoon resulted from the constant rain and snow that have fallen onto the area in recent weeks.
The Ubinas volcano maintains moderate levels of seismic activity associated with a slight buildup of inside pressure.
This means that future exhalations and / or explosions of low to medium magnitudes cannot be ruled out in the near future.
