Questions and Answers

    • Lombok is noticeably different to its close neighbor, Bali. the northern part of the island is mountainous and lush with tall trees and shrubs. The South on the other hand is arid and covered by savannas. Large Asian mammals are absents and replaced instead by large numbers  of marsupials, lizards, cockatoos and parrots. The difference becomes more pronounced as one moves further east where dry seasons are more prolonged and the land is dry and bush-like, and so in many areas corn and sago are the staple food, instead of rice.

    • There are many different types of volcanic eruptions. Different types of eruptions tend to form different types of volcanoes. Most volcanic eruptions are "builders," adding thin layers of lava or ash to the sides of a volcano, slowly building the easily recognized cone-shaped volcanoes seen around the world. Some eruptions, however, are "destructors" knocking off pieces of a volcano's summit or even destroying the entire mountain. Generally, small-to-medium eruptions build volcanoes, and large explosive eruptions tend to destroy them. Let's look at simple animations of some of the different types of eruptions.
    • The first animation shows a "building" or constructive eruption of a typical strato-volcano like Mount Raner or Fujiyama. The volcano itself consists of a pile of successive layers of ash and lava resting on a pre-existing surface. Prior to the surface eruption, a new mass of lava has surged into the established vent system deep under the mountain. Inflation of the mountain is negligible because the amount of fresh lava is small.
    • The eruption begins with the invasion of the fresh lava along the old eruption channel leading to the summi vent. In this case, the first stage of the eruption begins with a mildly explosive fire fountain of fragmented liquid rock. The hot particles blast out of the vent, but since the gas content is low, the particles almost immediately begin to fall back under the influence of gravity. The particles coat the sides of the cone and build up a new layer of ash. In this case, the layer is thick enough to flow slightly after landing, engulfing some of the neighboring vegetation. Next, there is a short break in activity, during which the ash layer cools.
