Natural Disasters/Limnic Eruption

Lake Nyos in 1986.

IntroductionEdit

A limnic eruption is a dangerous but rare event in which certain lakes suddenly release accumulated gases, which leads to asphyxiation in the surrounding area.[1]

RemediationEdit

It is possible to remediate the threat of a limnic eruption before one occurs through the use of degassing machinery on a lake of concern.[2]
