A strong strombolian explosion sends ash into the sky and covers the area around the eruptive vent with lava bombs (image: Galih Jati / VolcanoDiscovery Indonesia)

Krakatau was still putting up a great show in the past week when we had a short private Krakatau expedition from 24 to 26 August 2018. Our Indonesian volcano tour guide Galih Jati sent us some spectacular images showing Strombolian to Vulcanian type of explosive eruptions sending ash and lava bombs hundreds of meters into the air and showering the volcano’s flanks. As observed on our mid-August Krakatau Volcano Special it seems that the volcano’s activity decreased with fewer eruptions on a daily basis (about 2 every hour). Throughout our Krakatau expeditions in July and August, we observed that the volcano's activity was up to 100 explosions a day before 22 August but lowered to around 60 eruptions a day since. The latest satellite information seems to also confirm that although there is a constant moderate to high thermal anomaly above Anak Krakatau, the peaks of very high heat emission seen in late July to mid August have not been repeated recently. ...
