The Sinabung volcano, seen here from the E, rises above farmlands on the Karo Plateau. At the time of this photo Sinabung contained four summit craters, the southernmost of which was the youngest. Many prominent lava flows can be seen on the flanks of the volcano. Photo by Tom Casadevall, 1987 (U.S. Geological Survey).
