Sorikmarapi, seen here from the west, is a forested stratovolcano with a 600-m-wide summit crater containing a crater lake and substantial sulfur deposits. Another crater lake is located on the upper SE flank and several small craters occur within the main crater and on the outer flanks. Small explosive eruptions have been documented from summit and flank vents in the 19th and 20th centuries. Photo by Tom Casadevall, 1987 (U.S. Geological Survey).
