Gamalama (Peak von Ternate) ist eine nahezu perfekte konische, die die gesamte Insel Ternate aus der westlichen Küste Halmahera bildet. Es ist einer der aktivsten Vulkane Indonesiens.

Beschreibung:

Der Insel Ternate war eine große regionale Zentrum in portugiesischen und holländischen Gewürzhandels für mehrere Jahrhunderte, die der Hauptgrund dafür ist die historische Tätigkeit der Gamalana Vulkan so gut ist Dosumented. Eruptionen aufgezeichnet häufig seit dem 16. Jahrhundert, in der Regel stammt aus den Gipfel Kratern, obwohl Flanke Eruptionen in 1763, 1770, 1775 und 1962-63 aufgetreten sind. Einige Eruptionen z. B. in 1771, 1773, 1775, 1838, 1871, und als in letzter Zeit wie in 1962 verursachten Todesfälle.

Gamalana hat 9 Krater: Arfat Krater, Madiena, K1, K2, K3, K4, Laguna See, Tolire Jaha und Tolire Kecil. 3 Zapfen, schrittweise jüngere im Norden bilden den Gipfel der Gamalama Vulkan. Mehrere Maare und Öffnungen definieren eine Rift Zone, parallel zu dem Halmahera Insel Arc, die den Vulkan schneidet.

2007-2008 eruption
Seismic activity increased at Gamalama volcano beginning 20 August 2007 and a few days later, there was a small eruption. On 23 August, white and gray plumes rose to an altitude of 2.1 km. Authorities banned access within a 2-km radius of the active crater.
Activity continued into 2008 with weak occasional ash and steam emissions. On 11 May 2008, CVGHM reported that emissions from Gamalama had risen to higher altitudes during the previous two days. On 10 May, white-to-gray plumes rose to an altitude of 1.8 km and drifted N. On 11 May, white plumes increased throughout the day from 1.7 to 2.2 km altitude.

2003 eruption: pyroclastic flows and ash fall on Ternate
On 31 July, a series of strong explosions occurred, producing ash plumes up to 2 km above the crater. A pyroclastic flow traveled down Togorar valley on the NE flank of Gamalama volcano.
On 1 August, ashfall was 1-3 cm thick in the E part of the island and some of the local population was evacuated. Ternate town ca. 7 km east of Gamalana was covered with thick ash. There were no reports of casualties or damage.
Ash explosions continued until October 2003.

1994 Aug 5 eruption: 3 km high ash plume
An unusually powerful and sudden eruption occurred on 5 August 1994 at 21h25 local time, producing an ash cloud reaching 3 km above the summit and strong ash fall in nearby areas. An aviation warning was issued for the area.
A felt earthquake a few minutes before the eruption had an intensity of MM II-III. Smaller eruptions happened in the following days and weeks, such as on 14 August when there was ashfall in Ternate. The frequency of eruptions in this period was 5-20 minor explosions/day.
