What comes out of Krakatoa?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Krakatoa's 1883 eruption was so enormous that it nearly destroyed the island, leaving behind a ring of tiny islands and a seawater filled caldera. The volcanic vent has been somewhat active in recent years, however, leading to the formation of a tiny island in the middle of the caldera known as Anak Krakatau that is constantly being built up and eroded. The current Anak Krakatau is the fourth one to have broken the surface, and is still a matter of concern to vulcanologists and the Vulcanological Survey of Indonesia.

What type of volcano is Krakatoa?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Krakatoa is a Caldera Volcano.

A caldera is a cauldron-like volcanic feature usually formed by the collapse of land following a volcanic eruption. They are sometimes confused with volcanic craters. The word comes from Spanish caldera, and this from Latin CALDARIA, meaning "cooking pot." In some texts the English term cauldron is also used.

In 1815, the German geologist Leopold von Buch visited the Las Cañadas caldera of Teide on Tenerife, and the Caldera de Taburiente on La Palma, both in the Canary Islands. When he published his memoirs he introduced the term caldera into the geological vocabulary.
