Batu Tara volcano expedition Nov 2012 photos: strombolian activity

The photos were taken during 25-28 Nov 2012 when we visited the remote Komba island consisting of Batu Tara volcano during our recent volcano expedition to Indonesia. The volcano has been in continuous strombolian eruption, at fluctuating levels, since 2006. Very favorable weather and sea conditions allowed us to land several times on the narrow beach a few 100 m south of the eastern collapse scar of the volcano, the only place on shore from where the vent and its eruptions are visible. During our stay, activity varied from day to day, and consisted in frequent ash venting, mild to powerful strombolian eruptions accompanied by loud detonations and ejecting bombs to several hundred meters height above the vent, located at about 500 m elevation inside the deep collapse scar.
