Batu Tara volcano 30 June - 4 July 2015: eruptions

During our Batu Tara volcano expedition we stayed on the island from 30 June - 4 July 2015 and found the volcano in similar activity (strombolian) as during our other visits in Nov 2012 and 2014. However, during the night 2-3 July and early on 3 July, a phase of increased activity resulted in the formation of small pyroclastic flows caused by collapsing material ejected during the explosion and/or accumulated on the crater rim.
