Photo: Crater Lake White Island Volcano

Steam rises off Crater Lake on White Island volcano off the North Island of New Zealand surrounded by the remnants of explosions creating a fascinating landscape.

Crater Lake located on White Island, an active volcano in the Bay of Plenty off the North Island of New Zealand, has been created by eruptions over the years. Between the years of 1981 and 1983 due to some fairly big eruptions, the landscape of White Island has changed dramatically.

The biggest crater on the active volcano now has a lake caused by various eruptions and the steam rising above Crater Lake can be extremely overbearing.A close watch is always kept on White Island and as of Spring, 2007, Crater Lake has decreased to approximately twenty-eight meters below the level of which the lake will overflow at with the total depth being about ten meters. Crater Lake has dropped about nineteen meters in a single month affecting its size and temperature which is now at about ten degrees colder than it was. ... continue below the picture...

This has created the steam vents to be above the surface of the lake and due to their exposure some of the steam displays have reached heights of approximately three kilometers. All of this changes the geothermal process of White Island volcano and Crater Lake which could result in very fascinating steam shows.

The level of safeness on White Island volcano is still exceptionally good and a tour to see this natural phenomenon while visiting the North Island of New Zealand is well worth one's time.
