Java

Gede and Salak, high-risk volcanoes in West Java, are representative of many arc volcanoes.

In 2010 the Merapi experienced a dome collapse, which generated powerful pyroclastic flows.

In June 2006, after several months of unrest, several pyroclastic flows rushed down the southern slopes of the Merapi.

Sumbing and Sundoro stratovolcanoes, view from the north face of the Merapi. Sumbing erupted for the last time during the 18th century, and Sundoro in 1971.

Lahars are mudflows rushing down the slopes of volcanoes. They are caused by the remobilization of ashes during rainfalls on recent volcanic deposits.
