The symmetrical volcano Cereme rises to 3078 m near the northern coast of central Java.  A steep-sided double crater at the summit, seen in this sketch, caps the summit of Cereme, which was constructed at the northern rim of a 4.5 x 5 km caldera.  Eruptions, relatively infrequent in historical time, have been recorded since the late 17th century. Lithograph by T.A. Latour (from the collection of Maurice and Katia Krafft).
