Gamalama (pic de Ternate) est un stratovolcan conique quasi parfaite qui forme l'île entière de Ternate, au large de la côte ouest de Halmahera. Il est un des volcans les plus actifs en Indonésie.

Introduction:

L'île de Ternate a été un important centre régional dans le commerce des épices néerlandaise et portugaise pendant plusieurs siècles, qui est la principale raison de l'activité historique du volcan Gamalana est si bien dosumented. Éruptions, enregistrées fréquemment depuis le XVIe siècle, provient généralement des cratères de sommet, bien que le flanc éruptions ont eu lieu en 1763, 1770, 1775 et 1962-63. Certaines éruptions comme en 1771, 1773, 1775, 1838, 1871 et que ces derniers temps comme dans 1962 a causé des accidents mortels.

Gamalana a 9 cratères : cratère de Arfat, Madiena, K1, K2, K3, K4, Laguna Lake, Tolire Jaha et Tolire Kecil. 3 cônes, progressivement plus jeunes vers le Nord, forment le sommet du volcan Gamalama. Plusieurs des maars et des évents de définissent une zone de rift, parallèlement à l'arc insulaire de Halmahera, qui coupe le volcan.

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.

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.
