The fountains on the lava lake are caused by degassing, the release of hot gasses that rise from the magma chambers. The gasses are the main engine of the lake, providing just the right amount of heat energy to keep the lake stable and liquid. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

The smooth crust of the lake is broken into plates, which are moving against or away from each other, simulating plate tectonics. Above, a miniature mid-ocean spreading zone can be seen where two larger pieces of crust are moving away from each other. Even miniature transform faults and sheer zones due to differential and rotational movements can be seen. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
