A Yellow Alert is still in effect for the cantons of Turrialba and Alvarado, according to a statement from the National Emergency Commission on Tuesday. National Seismological Network volcanologist Carlos Ramírez told The Tico Times that twice as much ash fell in the eruption at 9:24 p.m. Monday than during the Oct. 29 and 30 eruptions.
The Tico Times caught up with racers just before the starting gun at 7 a.m. A thick fog blanketed the hills of Tres Ríos, and riders looked road-weary after the first day’s push from Jacó to Atenas. But several athletes were happy to discuss their experience.
The interior of the Earth has large unexplored sources of carbon, and a group of 35 scientists are meeting at the University of Costa Rica (UCR) Thursday to share the latest advances and research on the subject.
