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).
