A small lava flow from a vent low on the south flank of Gunung Api flowed into the sea, forming a narrow peninsula.  The May 9, 1988 lava flow was erupted from a 100-m-long fissure that produced a tuff cone over the vent.  Minor submarine activity occurred at the lower end of the fissure.  The western tip of Bantur Island appears in the background. Photo by Tom Casadevall, 1988 (U.S. Geological Survey).
