Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-05847

An explosive eruption from Galunggung on 7 August 1982 is accompanied by a pyroclastic flow advancing over the crater rim towards a reflector station that was being measured using the tripod to the lower left. The photo was taken from Butik Pasir Bentag, about 2 km from the crater. The 1-km-high ash-covered cliff to the left is a wall of the breached caldera.
