2011 October

29-30th October 2011

Photos taken from villages in the district of Lumajang, south of Semeru. With the month of october marking the start of this year`s rainy season, unfortunately the weather wasn`t optimal, had no possibilitiy to catch any eruptions during night time.

Type of activity: Mt. Semuru sent up ash cloudes every 30+/- minute.

Trucks collecting fine volcanic sand/dust of at the base of Semeru. The sand is used locally to produce cement for house building, however mostly transported to large cirtes in the vicinity, like Malang or Surabaya, to be sold for the same purpose. The riverbed seen on the photo contains not only sand/ash brought by lahars from Semeru but also bigger volcanic blocks.
