An eruption plume rises above Anak Krakatau on 13 February 1960. Explosive activity at Anak Krakatau was almost continuous from December 1959 until 1963. The construction of a new cone displaced the crater lake. A lava flow that reached the sea was emplaced sometime between 1960 and 1963. Photo courtesy Volcanological Survey of Indonesia, 1960.
