More than a decade after the powerful 1982-83 explosive eruption from Galunggung, the Warirang crater is filled by a lake that covers a late-stage scoria cone emplaced in the crater. A tunnel was constructed to stabilize the lake level and prevent overtopping and catastrophic breaching of the crater rim. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1995 (Smithsonian Institution).
