Anak Krakatau eruption June 2009: photos and impressons
A VolcanoDiscovery expedition spent 4 nights on Krakatau from 4-8 June and observed strong strombolian activity, often accompanied by loud blasts, from a new vent located between the old summit crater and the 2007 crater. This activity has essentially filled the 2007 crater with a new cinder cone and 'healed' the 2007 scar. At the time of leaving the island yesterday, activity was still going strong. Here are some first impressions from the tour as observed between 4-8 June 2009:
