TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation
Dempo is a prominent 3173-m-high stratovolcano that rises above the Pasumah Plain of SE Sumatra.

Background:

Remnants of 7 craters are found at or near the summit, with volcanism migrating to the WNW with time. The historically active summit crater of Gunung Dempo contains a 400-m-wide lake, located at the NW end of the crater complex. Historical eruptions have been restricted to small-to-moderate explosive activity that produced ashfall near the volcano.
