The ribbed surface of Gunung Merbabu towers to the north of Merapi volcano. The most recent magmatic eruptions from Merbabu originated from a NNW-SSE fissure system that cuts across the summit and fed large-volume lava flows on the northern and southern flanks. Moderate explosive eruptions have occurred from Merbabu's summit crater in historical time.
