Boiling Lake: Bubbling Greyish-Blue Water - Dominica

Postby vicked.vicky » Nov 21, 2008 Views: 46463

The Boiling Lake is a flooded fumarole approx. 6.5 miles east of Roseau. It is filled with bubbling greyish-blue water that is usually enveloped in a cloud of vapour. The lake is approximately 200ft (63m) across. The Boiling Lake is situated in the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, Dominica's World Heritage site. It is a flooded fumarole, or hole in the earth’s surface, 10.5 km east of Roseau, Dominica, on the Caribbean.

The measured water temperature is range from 180 to 197 degrees Fahrenheit (82 to 91.5 degrees Celsius) along the edges, but could not measure the temperature at the centre where the lake is actively boiling. They recorded the depth to be greater than 195 ft (59 m).

Periodically, there have been fluctuations in the level and activity of the lake. It was all but empty in June 2006, however as of April 2008 the lake is full and boiling vigorously. There is no road leading to the lake. In order to get there, people have to hike about 13 km, total of three hours one way.
