misnomer?[edit]

How exactly is Crater Lake's name a misnomer? I don't get it. -Pete 16:17, 19 May 2007 (UTC)


Crater Lake is formed from a caldera, not from a crater.

But the first sentence of the article says"A crater lake is a lake that forms in a volcanic crater, caldera, or maar." If this is a misnomer, then this first sentence is misnominating it ;-) Jackrepenning (talk) 06:50, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

bias?[edit]

the statement "Crater Lake ...has the clearest water of any lake in the world" seems like it's biased. presumably there are other crater lakes fed only by snow and rain that are just as clear. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.150.205.98 (talk) 02:24, 23 June 2008 (UTC)


"has the clearest water of any lake in the world." - agreed. This article should be tagged as requiring a citation for this claim. BlueTyson. —Preceding unsigned comment added by BlueTyson (talkcontribs) 00:06, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Meteor Craters[edit]

Should we split the list into two - one for volcanic crater lakes and the other for meteor crater lakes? Please raise any issues if not I will be WP:BOLD and split.--Guanlong wucaii 07:56, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Volcanic lake[edit]

Whoever thought volcanic lake should redirect to this article was wrong. The term volcanic lake can be used in at least three different ways; 1) a lake filling the crater of a volcano, 2) a lava lake or 3) a lake that was formed as a result of lava blocking a river valley or another similarity (e.g. Garibaldi Lake, Lava Lake). It seems like this should be an article insted of a redirect. Volcanoguy 22:24, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

I tried to address this issue by re-structuring (a bit) the article, and adding a mention/link for lava lakes. I also expanded the lists with a significant number of entries. Wikiwanito (talk) 22:57, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
