Ijen crater lake, one of the biggest in the world, holds about 36 million cubic meters of water. It’s about 200 meters deep and the water temperature varies between 20 and 60 degrees Celsius. Although regularly replenished by rain, this is no dilutant. Gasses burping from the bowels of the earth through the water like bubbles in a fizzy drink create extreme pollution.
About 50 liters per second leaks of acid water in the crater lake had infiltrated and contaminated surrounding rivers and wells. As a result, local people were affected by tooth decay and bone degeneration, while agricultural production was reduced.
Have a nice weekend everyone:)
