    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – High temperatures in the gaps that give way to the Turrialba volcano vents are being highlighted by the National Seismological Network (RSN). The institution ensures that this colossus is “not resting” after record temperatures exceeding 500° Celsius.

    RSN volcanologist, Gino Gonzalez, said that the activity is constant on the volcano; in the case of the fumaroles, they recorded the highest temperatures of the active volcanoes in the country.

    “This indicates that the volcano is still very active, suggesting greater monitoring of the volcano. We will now be sampling acidic gas output that can affect people who are around, which is very little, but from the point of view of volcanic risk can be a threat,” Gonzalez said.

    The volcanologist noted that the RSN has identified the emergence of new fumaroles in one of the craters with temperatures of 700° Celsius.

    The recent activity in the Turrialba volcano started since 2007, a period in which a phreatic eruption occurred after nearly 150 years of inactivity. The park is closed to visitation by tourists, due to gassing sulfur dioxide affecting flora and fauna on the site.
