The temperature of a crater lake above a slumbering volcano in Indonesia is rising at an alarming rate, possibly presaging a major eruption.

The location of the volcano (Mount Kalud) is shown on the map at right.

Below, I show a map of earthquakes in that region of the world over the last week (data: USGS, available here) with areas experiencing quakes in excess of 5 on the Richter scale shown as red squares. Just food for thought. . . .
