La caldera del lago de Coatepeque en Santa Ana, es uno de los volcanes activos, más peligrosos y poco estudiados del país, por ello investigadores de la Universidad Suny Buffalo State, vulcanólogos del Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (MARN), e hidrógrafos del Centro Nacional de Registro (CNR) realizan un estudio del fondo del lago para analizar posibles peligros volcánicos.

De acuerdo con el MARN, el estudio concluirá a final del año y se obtendrán mapas e información para examinar la probabilidad de riesgos y vulnerabilidad asociados a desastres naturales.

Para explorar el fondo del lago, los expertos utilizan equipo instrumental especializado como sondeo Mono-Haz y escaneo lateral SONAR.

Al final del estudio también se obtendrá una fotografía del fondo del lago, pero sin agua, según informaron los especialistas.

“Coatepeque posee un cráter oval de 7 y 10 kilómetros de diámetro, con varios domos y conos dentro y en sus alrededores de tipo basáltico y obsidiano. Se ha estimado que la erupción más reciente de estos fue hace aproximadamente 10,000 años”, indicó el MARN.
