Bromo volcano (East Java, Indonesia): intermittent ash emissions

Monday Oct 10, 2016 17:39 PM | DOOR: T

Ash emission from Bromo on 6 Oct 2016
Ash emission from Bromo on 6 Oct 2016
The volcano remains highly restless with fluctuating intensity of degassing and ash venting. A peak of activity took place during 6-8 Oct when intense degassing and near-continuous ash emissions occurred in longer phases.
Weak incandescence, probably from hot gasses, was seen from the crater. Activity has now decreased again a bit during the past 2 days. The alert level remains at 3 ("siaga", alert) on a scale of 1 (lowest) - 4 (highest).

Background:

Gunung Bromo (Mount Bromo) volcano is a small, but active volcanic cinder cone on the Indonesian island of Java. Bromo is located in the center of the Sandsea Caldera, itself only a portion of the larger Tengger Caldera. The Sandsea caldera formed around 8,000 years ago, in what must have been a massive eruption. Subsequent volcanic activity formed the cluster of cinder cones in the caldera’s center, including Bromo.
The historical record indicates eruptions of Bromo every few years since 1804, and geologic evidence indicates eruptions at least several hundred years earlier. The most recent eruption occured in 2004, and tragically killed two tourists.


The image above shows most of the Sandsea Caldera, along with Gunung Bromo and the older volcanoes on the caldera floor. A small plume of steam is visible rising out of Mt. Bromo. Space Imaging’s IKONOS satellite, capable of 4-meter per-pixel color imagery, and 1-meter per-pixel resolution panchromatic imagery, acquired the data on July 8, 2001.
