Image Caption:
STS045-152-027: Manila Bay and Taal volcano, Luzon, Philippines
Just south of Manila Bay is another volcano, Taal, which is fre-
quently active and is generally thought of as a greater volcanic
hazard than Pinatubo. Taal, the large lake- filled caldera,
triggered a volcanic alert roughly one month ago when its seismic
activity increased (consistent with the upward migration of mag-
ma) and the lake temperature increased by several degrees. This
photograph clearly shows discolored water in the small crater
lake on the summit of the volcano in the middle of the lake.
