Krakatau (indonesisk: Krakatau; engelsk: Krakatoa eller Krakatau) er en vulkansk øy (13 km²) som ligger i Sundastredet mellom de indonesiske øyene, Java og Sumatra.Krakatau er også navnet på vulkanen som dominerer store deler av øya. Vulkanen er kjent for å ha hatt en mengde større utbrudd gjennom historien, som har ført til noen av de mest katastrofale av sitt slag i moderne tid The eruption of Krakatoa, or Krakatau, in August 1883 was one of the most deadly volcanic eruptions of modern history. It is estimated that more than 36,000 people died
On August 27, 1883 four massive volcanic explosions took place at the island of Krakatoa in Indonesia producing the loudest sound ever recorded in history.The eruption and the resulting tsunamis caused the death of at least 36,000 people making it one of the worst natural disasters in modern times. Here are 10 interesting facts about the cause, measure on the VEI scale, death toll and effects. 1883 i andre kalendere; Gregoriansk kalender: 1883 MDCCCLXXXIII: Ab urbe condita: 2636 Armensk kalender: 1332 26. august - Det kraftigste vulkanutbrudd i moderne tid rammet øya Krakatau i Indonesia. 36000 mennesker omkom. 18. november - Den amerikanske og canadiske jernbanen standardiserer seg med fem tidssoner As news breaks of a deadly tsunami in the Sunda Strait, we revisit the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa, which caused destruction on an almost unimaginable scale and resulted in at least 36,417 deaths Krakatau remained relatively quiet until the 1920s, when volcanic activity began again. Since then, smaller eruptions have created a new cone, Anak Krakatau, or child of Krakatau that has risen in the center of the caldera created in 1883. The offspring of Krakatau has grown fast, showing continuous activity since its first eruption
Excerpt from the preface: We undertook, in the centennial year of Krakatau's 1883 eruption, a harder look at this classic benchmark event in the history of volcanology. Like most linguistically crippled, English-speaking geologists, our knowledge of Krakatau came from the obligatory descriptions in textbooks, supplemented by a few scattered papers and the famous Royal Society report of 1888 In 1883, the volcano on the Indonesian island of Krakatoa erupted with 13,000 times the power of an atomic bomb. The sound of the spewing smoke and rock was reportedly heard thousands of miles away, as far as islands off the eastern coast of Africa The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) began in the afternoon of August 26, 1883 (with origins as early as May of that year), and culminated with several destructive eruptions of the remaining caldera.On August 27, two-thirds of Krakatoa collapsed in a chain of titanic explosions, destroying most of the island and its surrounding archipelago The eruption of the Krakatau (or Krakatoa) on a small island located in the middle of the Sunda Strait (at the time part of the Netherlands East Indies) in August 1883 was, in many aspects, the.

The world quickly took notice Krakatoa (Indonesian name: Krakatau) is an active volcano in the Sunda Strait, Indonesia.There are many different ways the name has been spelled. The volcano has erupted repeatedly in known history. The best known of these events occurred in late August 1883. On 22 December 2018 the central cone collapsed and caused a tsunami in the Sunda Strait

The 1883 Krakatoa eruption occurred in Indonesia (Dutch East Indies) on the island of Krakatoa. It was the deadliest volcanic eruption in recorded history. Two-thirds of the island of Krakatoa collapsed during four different gigantic eruptions on August 27th For context, Dr. Heidarzadeh gives the example of the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa, which generated a tsunami that struck land at a maximum height of 42m, causing at least 36,000 deaths at a time. The bestselling author of The Professor and the Madman and The Map That Changed the World examines the enduring and world-changing effects of the catastrophic eruption off the coast of Java of the earth's most dangerous volcano -- Krakatoa. The legendary annihilation in 1883 of the volcano-island of Krakatoa -- the name has since become a byword for a cataclysmic disaster -- was followed by an. Krakatoa is a scientific history of the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa, a volcano located on a small island between Java and Sumatra in what is now Indonesia and what was then the Dutch East Indies. Like all Simon Winchester books, this one takes a long, erratic detour over the course of a couple hundred pages before actually reaching the point
Krakatoa had been dormant for around 200 years when it woke up on May 20, 1883. A cloud of ash, reported by the captain of a German warship, rose nearly 7 miles above the island . Collapse of the ancestral Krakatau edifice, perhaps in 416 AD, formed a 7-km-wide caldera.Remnants of this ancestral volcano are preserved in Verlaten and Lang Islands; subsequently Rakata, Danan and Perbuwatan volcanoes were formed, coalescing to create the pre-1883 Krakatau Island Krakatoa vulkan: Fakta om 1883 utbrudd.

I don't even know what got into me, honestly Krakatoa was dormant until the period between May and August of 1883. On August 26, 1883, Krakatoa began to erupt and release significant ash clouds a far distance above the island. It was the morning of August 27, 1883 that one of the world's most astronomical eruptions occurred from the Krakatoa volcano
The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa, on August 27, killed more than 36,000 people and radically altered global weather and temperatures for years afterwards The explosions from Krakatoa caused massive tsunamis that raised to at least 131 ft (45m) this destroyed 163 villages along the coast of Java and Sumatra. The Krakatoa explosions killed more than 36,000 people. The ash from the explosion rose up 50 miles in altitude. This is higher than the altitude that most aeroplanes fly 1883 Krakatoa Eruption. the sounds of heavy guns firing in the distance could be heard. Eye witness accounts. Captain T. H. Lindemann of the ship Governor General Loudon and the passengers on his ship report seeing the eruption happening from where they were anchored at Telok Betong (Lampong Bay)
Krakatoa - the world's most infamous volcano. The island group of Krakatoa (or Krakatau) lies in the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra. Krakatoa is infamous for its violent Plinian eruption in 1883, that destroyed the previous volcanic edifice and enlarged its caldera The plates involved in Krakatau are the Eurasian plate and the Indonesian-Australian plate. At this convergent plate boundary, the Indonesian-Australian plate is sub-ducting underneath the Eurasian plate. Magma is rising up all along that boundary, making Indonesia a very active area. At a convergent boundary, one plate sub-ducts under another
Krakatoa exhibited its first stirrings in more than 200 years on May 20, 1883. A German warship passing by reported a seven-mile high cloud of ash and dust over Krakatoa The 1883 Krakatoa eruption was a major volcanic eruption that killed tens of thousands of people and caused worldwide temperatures to drop. The eruption is considered one of the most destructive events to be recorded in human history Men Krakatoa hadde ikke hatt noe utbrudd som lokalbefolkningen på øya, eller de mange sjømennene som trafikkerte farvannene her, kunne huske. Det var to hundre år siden sist. De som bevitnet utbruddet i 1883, og overlevde, skulle aldri glemme det. For utbruddet på Kraktoa i 1883 skulle ikke bli noe vanlig vulkanutbrudd On Aug. 27, 1883, just after 10 a.m., the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano in Indonesia made the loudest sound known to history — a terrifying roar that sent sound waves around the world four.

After a few positive paragraphs reviewing Gillen D'Arcy Wood's Tambora: The Eruption That Changed the World, Winchester takes exception to Wood's comparison of the. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) began in the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883 (with origins as early as May of that year), and peaked in the late morning of Monday, 27 August when over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera.Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February. O n August 27, 1883, the Earth let out a noise louder than any it has made since.. It was 10:02 a.m. local time when the sound emerged from the island of Krakatoa, which sits between Java and Sumatra in Indonesia. It was heard 1,300 miles away in the Andaman and Nicobar islands (extraordinary sounds were heard, as of guns firing); 2,000 miles away in New Guinea and Western Australia.

Anak Krakatoa: The dark history of volcano emerging from the sea. Anak Krakatoa formed over years after explosive eruption of Krakatoa volcano in 1883, one of worst in recorded history Krakatoa is still active, We don't know exactly when Krakatoa will next erupt, or if any future eruptions will match those of 1883 or even 2018. That's a question for volcanologists Anak Krakatau, which means child of Kratatau, replaced the craters destroyed in the 1883 eruption. The explosions heard in the 1883 eruption remain the loudest noise on human record. The sound was heard across the Indian Ocean, as far away as Rodriguez Island, 4,653 kilometers to the west, and Australia, 3,450 kilometers to the east

Mount Krakatoa is an example of a stratovolcano, a tall, conical volcano with. In this case, the most likely culprit is Anak Krakatau. If this name sounds familiar, that may be because the volcano is the product of the infamous Krakatoa volcano, which roared to life in 1883.
