Merapi Volcano, Indonesia

A blocky lava dome produced during eruptions from 1972 to 1985, lies within the summit crater of Merapi volcano in central Java.

A small spine appears on the right in this July 4, 1986 photo, which was taken during a period of inactivity prior to destruction of the dome on October 10, 1986.

Merapi's historical eruptions have been characterized by repeated growth and collapse of the summit lava dome, periodically producing pyroclastic flows that have affected populated areas on the volcano's western and southern flanks.
