The Volcano Adventure Guide: Excellent information and background for anyone wishing to visit active volcanoes safely and enjoyably. The book presents guidelines to visiting 42 different volcanoes around the world.
Lamongan is a small stratovolcano in East Java located between the larger Tengger and Iyang-Argapura volcanoes. It is surrounded by numerous craters and cinder cones, forming a volcanic zone stretching 25 km E-W and 16 km N-S., and covering an area of 260 km2.
The volcano had many eruptions in the 19th century, but has probably not erupted since. It is remarkable and unusual for a subduction zone volcano for its many flank vents and relatively effusive eruption style. In the period of intense activity between 1799 and 1898, there were up to 15 basaltic lava flow eruptions.

Lamongan volcano (East Java, Indonesia): signs of unrest, alert raised to yellow due to increased seismic activity
Thursday Mar 15, 2012 08:33 AM | BY: T
A new volcano in Indonesia, Lamongan volcano in Eastern Java, is showing signs of unrest: weak steaming from its active crater and increasing earthquakes were reported by Indonesian scientists. The increase in earthquakes started on 23 February and seismicity increased again significantly on 8 March when tremor was recorded continuously the next day.
CVGHM raised the Alert Level to 2 (on a scale of 1-4) on 9 March. Residents and tourists were prohibited from going within a 1-km-radius of the active crater.
Lamongan is a small, relatively unknown stratovolcano east of the large Tengger massif (which contains the famous Bromo volcano). It was very active in the 19th century when it produced several lava flows, but has remained more or less silent during the past 110 years.
Stromboli volcano photos: The lighthouse of the Thyrrhenian Sea - thanks to its typical, regular explosions that coined the term "strombolian activity", Stromboli is one of the most famous and photogenic volcanoes in the world.
Latest quakes in Greece: Greece has a lot of earthquake activity, but most of them occur around the margin of the Aegean microplate. The Cycladic islands are located in its center and therefore seismically comparably quiet.
