The small 1247-m-high andesitic volcano of Baluran, dwarfed by its neighbor Ijen volcano to the SW, occupies the very NE tip of Java. Gunung Baluran contains a broad horseshoe-shaped crater breached to the NE. The volcano lies within a national park and game reserve featuring savannah grasslands and monsoon forests. Baluran was considered by van Bemmelen (1949b) to be of Holocene age.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Baluran. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Baluran page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Baluran.
|An aerial view from the SW on September 12, 1991 shows an eruption plume from Raung volcano in eastern Java blown by strong winds to the NW. Behind Raung is the massive Ijen caldera, capped by the post-caldera cone of Gunung Merapi (upper right). The light spot below and to the left of Merapi is Kawah Ijen, a renowned crater lake. The flat-topped volcano at the upper left is Gunung Baluran, which occupies the NE-most tip of the island of Java.

Gunung Baluran, which occupies the very NE tip of Java, contains a broad horseshoe-shaped crater breached to the NE. The volcano lies within a national park and game reserve featuring savannah grasslands and monsoon forests.

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.
