Lokon-Empung

Stratovolcano 1580 m / 5,184 ft
North Sulawesi, Indonesia, 1.36°N / 124.79°E
Aktueller Status: normal / ruhend (1 von 5)
Last update: 8 Dez 2021 (Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report)

The twin volcanoes Lokon and Empung, rising about 800 m above the plain of Tondano, are among the most active volcanoes of Sulawesi.
Lokon, the higher of the two peaks (whose summits are only 2.2 km apart), has a flat, craterless top. The younger Empung volcano has a 400-m-wide, 150-m-deep crater that erupted last in the 18th century, but all subsequent eruptions have originated from Tompaluan, a 150 x 250 m wide double crater situated in the saddle between the two peaks.
Historical eruptions have primarily produced small-to-moderate ash plumes that have occasionally damaged croplands and houses, but lava-dome growth and pyroclastic flows have also occurred.
