Krakatau revisited: expedition July 2008 photos

We decided to revisit Anak Krakatau in early July. Its activity of Anak Krakatau was still moderately strong, although individual explosions only occurred at intervals between 1-4 hrs. Generally, eruptions were more ash-rich than in November, these eruptions were rich in ash, with frequent small lightnings in the ash plumes that reached up to about 1 km height.

The old soil where the trees grew is visible here. Probably, it formed by deposits of collapse of the Rakata island after the 1883 eruption. The sediment platform it belongs to is now being eroded by wave action. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
