Fumaroles in the summit crater of Momotombo volcano emit vigorous vapor plumes.  The 150 x 250 m wide crater of Momotombo is narrowly breached to the NE, where a lava flow emerged during the 1905 eruption.  The geothermal field on the southern flank of Momotombo can be seen at the lower left along the shores of Lake Managua. Photo by Jaime Incer, 1991.
