Batu Tara photos
: A remote island in the Flores Sea of Indonesia formed by a single volcano that has been in strong strombolian eruption for years. We regularly lead expeditions to there where we camp several days to observe it.
Small spherical balls of volcanic ash that form from a wet nucleus falling through a volcanic ash cloud.
