Lava lake The term 'Lava lake' as it applies to the area of volcanos can be defined as ' Another common lava product is the ponded flow or lava lake. The surface of lava that is ponded is smooth, broken only by polygonal cooling cracks, formed in much the same way as shrinkage cracks in mud that has been dried by the sun. ... The formation of the lava lake's solid crust by cooling can be compared to the formation of a sheet of ice on top of a body of water during a winter freeze'.
