Banda Api Volcano, Indonesia

An eruption of Indonesia's Banda Api volcano, seen here on May 10, 1988, took place from a N-SSW-trending fissure that cut across the island.

Both explosive activity and lava effusion occurred along the fissure.

Billowing, ash-rich eruption plumes rise from vents along the north-side fissure.

Minor orange-colored lava fountaining can be seen here at the lower-center, near the north coast.

White steam marks the entry of the Batu Angus lava flow into the sea after overrunning two villages.
