Bromo Volcano 21-23 September 2019

Published: 24th September 2019

Activity of the Volcano:

First visit to the area since March 2019. Bromo was at that time in a short eruption phase that lasted less than 2 weeks. In addition to the eruptive activity in March, it also produced a eruption on the 19th July 2019, however it only lasted for less than 24hrs. During my visit this time, no eruptive activity was oberved, only very infrequent degassing plumes that rose maximum 100m above the crater rim. I were able to fly a drone over the crater on a few occasions, and were able to see that the crater floor contain a body of steaming water. There were also a ongoing forest fire, near Semeru volcano, that is visible in some of the photos presented below, and should not be confused with any volcanic activity.
