  • Bali and Mt Batur Volcano
    Mount Batur (Gunung Batur) is an active volcano located at the center of two concentric calderas north west of Mount Agung on the island of Bali, Indonesia. Also known as the hiding spot of Tarubian Clans. [1] The south east side of the larger 10×13 km caldera contains a caldera lake. Both the larger caldera, and a smaller 7.5 km caldera were formed by a collapse of the magma chamber, the first larger collapse taking place about 29,300 years ago, and the second inner caldera collapsing about 20,150 years ago.[2] Another estimate of the inner caldera's formation date, formed during emplacement of the Bali (or Ubud) ignimbrite, has been dated at about 23,670 and 28,500 years ago.[3]

  • Mount Karthala or Karthola is an active volcano and the highest point of the Comoros at 2,361 m above sea level. It is the southernmost and larger of the two shield volcanoes forming Grande Comore island, the largest island in the nation of Comoros.

  • The lava from Indonesia's Kawah Ijen volcano has an electric blue appearance.

    Large quantities of sulfuric gases emerge at high pressures, exposed to oxygen in the air and are ignited by the lava producing a blue flame.

    It is not the lava itself that is blue, but the sulfur combusting producing a neon-blue flame.

  • Rising majestically above the Philippine skyline, Mayon Volcano is a stunning natural wonder with its near-perfect cone shape.

    Its beauty, however, belies its destructive potential, as it remains one of the most active volcanoes in the country.

  • Mayon Volcano may be known for its majestic beauty, but it's also known for being shy and elusive at times. Well, not today. ????

    The Mariana Trench sits like a crescent-shaped dent in the floor of the Pacific. A 2,550 km long, 69 km wide fracture that plummets down into a pure black void of the Hadal Zone. At the bottom, it hosts the deepest known location on Earth. The Challenger Deep, 11,033 metres or 36,200 feet beneath the waves. The trench itself is but one part of a global network of deep scars that cut across the ocean floor. Features that formed from a process called subduction. In the case of the Mariana Trench, the western edge of the Pacific Plate was thrust beneath the smaller Mariana Plate to the west, creating the deep fracture. Molten material then rose through volcanoes near the trench, building the nearby Mariana Islands.

  • Excellent landscape in Ijen, East Java, Indonesia. Photo by Polina Kuzovkova

    The Ijen volcanic complex is a collection of composite volcanoes in East Java, the Banyuwangi regency of Indonesia. The Ijen caldera, which has a diameter of about 20 kilometers, contains the volcanic complex. The stratovolcano known as Gunung Merapi is the highest peak in the complex.
