The fountains on the lava lake are caused by degassing, the release of hot gasses that rise from the magma chambers. The gasses are the main engine of the lake, providing just the right amount of heat energy to keep the lake stable and liquid. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

On 17 Oct, explosions were particularly violent at Anak Krakatau. We show a series of images of a spectacular explosion captured from close range by boat. 2 months later, the cone of Anak Krakatau collapsed into the sea on the evening of 22 Dec 2018, triggering a catastrophic tsunami. The following sequence of pictures was taken within few seconds from each other each. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
