  • Description

  00:47:00  2008  Color  Sound

The Pavin Lake is the youngest French crater lake (6000 years). Its volcanic origins give it a very concave shape, which is responsible of a unique phenomenon in France: the lake deep waters never mix with the superficial waters. In this film, a multidisciplinary team of scientists presents the results of several years of research.
