The heat has dropped by only 19 degrees over the last year!
And they sent one of the rocks off for testing, so perhaps more information will be forthcoming.
They say that magma has been ruled out, and I wonder how they came to that conclusion. Someone on this thread mentioned gas, but there is such a
thing as gas-poor magma.
The theory they're working with is that a chemical reaction between the exposed landslide material and oxygen led to the thermal release. I don't
know if that's feasible...
I will be interested to know what results come back from the sample tested.
[Edit: I just read the last link posted, everything above I learned from that link. There's more too, those were just the bits that most interested
me. Do take the time to read the link, it's very informative.]
