11 July 2018 seismographs from Krakatau, showing the incredibly intense seismicity of the volcano's strong explosive eruption (screenshot from video by Andi)
Our Indonesian volcano expedition leader Andi has sent us the below video of the current seismicity of Anak Krakatau: "Krakatau is going crazy ...100 times explosion a day ... very loud could be heard untill Carita 42 km away"

See for comparison above a seismograph from Krakatau during the volcano's eruption late November 2007, which was characterised by impressive Strombolian to Vulcanian type explosions.

The explosive activity of the volcano continues and seems to be increasing with strombolian to vulcanian-style explosions from the summit crater.

Ash plumes can be seen on satellite imagery now, but so far have been low and do not affect air traffic significantly.
We will be visiting the island and camp 3 nights during our next Volcano Special tour from 10-15 August. If you are interested to join a small group, please visit our Krakatau Volcano Special page!
