Abstract erapi volcano is among the most hazardous volcanoes on the planet. Ancient avanese folklore describes erapi's activity as the interaction between the pirit Kings that inhabit the volcano and the ueen of the South ea, who resides at arangtritis beach, 50 km of erapi. The royal palace in ogyakarta is located half‐way along the hypothetical line between erapi and arangtritis (the erapi–raton–outh ea axis) to bring balance between these mystical forces. In 2006 and 2010, erapi erupted… 

Ancient oral tradition in Central Java warns of volcano–earthquake interaction

Merapi volcano in Central Java, Indonesia, is one of the most hazardous volcanoes in Southeast Asia, yet humans have inhabited the area around Merapi since ancient times. As a consequence, a rich but

This chapter discusses the unique characteristics of the volcanic eruptions in Indonesia. We know that Indonesia has 147 volcanoes and 76 of them are active volcanoes and spread along the islands of

The 2015 eruption of Gamalama volcano (Ternate Island–Indonesia): precursor, crisis management, and community response

Gamalama is an active stratovolcano on Ternate, a small volcanic island in Maluku Utara, Indonesia. Since 1510, a total of 77 eruptions have been recorded, with various impacts on the population and

Disaster Mitigation Model of Eruption Based on Local Wisdom in Indonesia

Kelud is one of the most active volcanoes in Indonesia and suffered a major eruption in 2014. Although they are not part of the super volcano, the impact of the eruption is extraordinary. However,

Lesson Learned on Handling Volcanic Ash of Kartini Reactor

Indonesia is located along the path of the Pacific Ring of Fire, home of about 83 active volcanoes, and is operating 3 research reactors. The volcanic eruptions in Indonesia occurred several times in

A review framework of how earthquakes trigger volcanic eruptions

This framework outlines three parameters observable at volcanoes, namely magma viscosity, open- or closed-system degassing and the presence or absence of an active hydrothermal system, and illustrates that most types of volcanoes may be seismically-triggered.

Ritual Communication and Disasters Preparedness in the Slope of Merapi Volcano

This paper explores how ritual communication as cultural behavior in the slopes of Mount Merapi, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Symbolic interactionism theory is used to understand the forms and meanings of

The Reconstruction of Disaster Knowledge through Thematic Learning of Science, Environment, Technology, and Society Integrated with Local Wisdom

This study aimed to improve the mastery of knowledge, attitudes, and skills of students in disaster mitigation in prone areas of volcanic eruptions. The subjects of this research were fifth (V)



Bi-directional volcano-earthquake interaction at Mauna Loa Volcano, Hawaii

[1] The activity at Mauna Loa volcano, Hawaii, is characterized by eruptive fissures that propagate into the Southwest Rift Zone (SWRZ) or into the Northeast Rift Zone (NERZ) and by large earthquakes

The 26 May 2006 magnitude 6.4 Yogyakarta earthquake south of Mt. Merapi volcano: Did lahar deposits amplify ground shaking and thus lead to the disaster?

Indonesia is repeatedly unsettled by severe volcano‐ and earthquake‐related disasters, which are geologically coupled to the 5–7 cm/a tectonic convergence of the Australian plate beneath the Sunda

A tectonic earthquake sequence preceding the April–May 1999 eruption of Shishaldin Volcano, Alaska

Abstract.On 4 March 1999, a shallow ML 5.2 earthquake occurred beneath Unimak Island in the Aleutian Arc. This earthquake was located 10–15 km west of Shishaldin Volcano, a large, frequently active

Volcanic activity influenced by tectonic earthquakes: Static and dynamic stress triggering at Mt. Merapi

Mt. Merapi is one of the most dangerous volcanoes in Indonesia, located within the tectonically active region of south‐central Java. This study investigates how Mt. Merapi affected ‐ and was affected

Crustal volatile release at Merapi volcano; the 2006 earthquake and eruption events

High‐temperature gas in volcanic island arcs is widely considered to originate predominantly from the mantle wedge and from subducted sediments of the down‐going slab. Over the decade (1994–2005)
