Virtual Field Trip to the Southern Flank of Merapi
On December 5-9, 1997, the Volcanological
Survey of Indonesia and UNESCO hosted the Merapi Volcano Decade International
Workshop II in Yogyakarta, central Java. One day on the workshop was dedicated
to a field trip on the south flank of Merapi. This report was sent
by Steve Mattox, roving VolcanoWorld reporter! Below is a Map of Merapi volcano with numbered field trip stops (red). Rivers are thin black lines. Major roads are thick black lines. (From Bronto and others, 1997).
