Anak Krakatoa Volcano Webcam
April 3, 2008
Krakatoa is a stratovolcano in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra in Indonesia. It has erupted repeatedly, massively, and with disastrous consequences throughout recorded history.
The best known eruption culminated in a series of massive explosions on August 26–27, 1883, which was among the most violent volcanic events in modern times. With a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 6, it was equivalent to 200 megatons of TNT — about 13,000 times the yield of an Atomic detonation.
The KRAKMON systems consists of a number of geophysical, gas-geochemical and environmental measuring sites on the Krakatau island complex located in the Sunda Strait.
