A meteorological cloud rises above the summit of Dempo stratovolcano in SE Sumatra, towering nearly 3 km above tea plantations below its E flank. Dempo has produced frequent historical recent small-to-moderate explosive eruptions. The summit contains seven partially overlapping craters, the youngest of which is partially filled by a crater lake. Photo by Deddy Rochendi, 1981 (Volcanological Survey of Indonesia).
