Anak Krakatau erupts 56 times in one day – Video

Mount Anak Krakatau (“Child of Krakatau”)


In a statement today (23 Sep 2018), MAGMA Indonesia (Multiplatform Application for Geohazard Mitigation and Assessment in Indonesia) announced that Mount Anak Krakatau erupted 56 times yesterday.

MAGMA Indonesia stated, adding that tourists and other people were prohibited from approaching the crater within a 2 km (1.2 miles) radius.

Krakatau is a volcanic island located in the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra in Indonesia. In 1883 the cataclysmic eruption of the “original” (and much larger) Krakatau killed more than 30,000 people.

In 1927, a new island, Anak Krakatau, emerged from the 1883 caldera. The new island was formed by an underwater eruption.

  1. hefty and a lot of particulates;-(
    if K jnr rose from the old ones caldera(unusual)?
    then the area under it must be large and determined to have a vent route.
    noticed the steam rising offshore/
    or the lava ran fast down the steep sides and hit the water already?
    between Katla ,this one, and min solar things could well get grim fast;-(
    Im having a hard time getting any seed for spring/summer plants to sprout as we keep having such low day and night temps, and thats IN a sheltered greenhouse!

  2. Larva moving from vent to left side of island and pyroclastic flow down wind, the three islands surrounding K Jnr are the remains of the original island, the big bang was caused by the magma chamber emptying explosively, the volcano structure then collapsing into the chamber, together with vast quantities of sea water, which then flash converted to steam and removed the island as a steam explosion.
    Katia is quite capable of doing exactly the same but using Ice as the water source. They will hear the bang in Africa.
    Grand Solar Minimums has a habit of being accompanied by very large volcanic eruptions, so much so, the root cause being over looked by climate Ologists being fogged by the “wood” of CO2 and SO2 eruptive particles, they can’t see Volcano “trees” being stimulated by the gravity waves from the GSM Sun’s trefoil obit around the Solar System BarryCentre for each GSM. The LALIA is a prime example, with three T6/7 lagging eruptions yet the climate cooling was blamed on the volcanos.

  3. Have you looked at the sun lately. I don’t know about you, but three years early to the minimum and lots of dark areas have me wondering about the future. I hate that Robert is right. I was hoping he was wrong ! In his 1st book it is explained exactly what is happening now.

  4. I think the trends are down but the oceanic sea surface temperatures have risen lately and this is frustrating to say the least.
    Now +.281 above 1981-2010 from +.10c above means not very long ago.

    This could just be a counter trend within the lower trend but it is in the very least surprising to me.

    Any one have any thoughts about it?
