Pulosari volcano at the western end of Java lies south of the 15-km-wide Pleistocene Danau caldera. The summit of Pulosari stratovolcano contains a nearly 300-m-deep crater with active solfataras on its wall. The 1346-m-high basaltic-to-andesitic Pulosari volcano lies across a low saddle from the higher Karang volcano, which was constructed on the SE rim of Danau caldera.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Pulosari. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Pulosari page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

The small circular, forested volcano at the center of this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper right) is Pulosari. The 1346-m-high Pulosari stratovolcano has a nearly 300-m-deep summit crater with solfataras on its walls. The volcano lies SE of the 15-km-wide Pleistocene Danau caldera, whose northern and eastern rims and light-colored floor are seen at the upper right.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
