Mount Bromo Eruption

Mount Bromo Eruption has increased during past two weeks on early December 2011 and have been near continuous. On 7 Dec, a narrow plume extended 150 km south from Mt Bromo volcano. The past few days, huge ash emissions have been weaker and mainly drifted westwards, causing Malang's airport in only 30 km distance to close down temporarily. An exclusion zone of 2.5 radius around the crater is in place. Alert level remains at 3 ("siaga") on a scale of 1-4. There is not any effected for visitors to enjoy Mt Bromo Sunrise Tour from second highest summit.

A sharp increase in volcanic tremor recorded this morning from Mt Bromo Crater prompted the Indonesian Volcanological Survey to raise the alert level for this mountain from 1 (normal) to 2 (unrest) on a scale of 1-4. 

Except for a weak steam and gas plume rising 50 m from the crater, there are no other changes suggesting any immediate eruption. The last eruption was between late 2010-March 2011 and caused extensive damage by ash fall on nearby villages.

Concerning about Mount Bromo Eruption in December 2016, the local government prohibited the foreign and domestic visitors to enjoy Mt Bromo Milky Way tour and Sunrise trip, Sunset tour, Prewedding tour, Sea of Sand and Pananjakan (highest peak on tengger massif), most visitos only suggested to enjoy this volcano and view from second highest peak named Seruni Point.

 Eruption History

The original Tengger mountain was built up by Eruption of pyroclastic deposits and lava flows to a height of 4500 m. called Ngadisari, and formed 820,000 years ago.
Paroxysmal explosive eruptions caused Ngadisari village to collapse and formed a Caldera. Cemoro Lawang wall was formed by large amounts of ignimbrite flows. Paroxysmal explosive eruptions formed the present structure of the outer caldera. Recent volcanic activity occurred at six Eruption vents inside the caldera.

At 2015 the Eruption was raised to level 3 alert (Siaga) on 4th December 2015 after an increase in volcanic earthquakes. An exclusion zone of 2.5 km radius was placed around the crater. 
2012, an alert level was raised to level 2 (Waspada) on 3rd October 2012, after an increase in amplitude of volcanic tremor. A 1 km exclusion zone was placed around volcano crater. Visual observations reported thin white emissions rising 50 m above the crater. 

2010-11 Eruption Activity

Seismic activity increased in November 2010. Between 1-7 November two shallow volcanic earthquakes were detected. This increased to 540 between 8-14 November, and 354 between 15-21 November. Continuous tremor was recorded on 22-23 November. it was raised to highest level 4 alert on 23rd November 2010.

Mt Bromo Eruption occurred on Friday 26th November. Ash reached 500 m above the crater. On 28th January 2011 ash emissions from the Crater caused the cancellation of some international flights to Bali. Thousands of passengers were affected by disrupted flight schedules after ash emissions from Bromo volcano reached Bali on 27th January. A volcanic ash advisory reported ash emissions extending 200 nautical miles east of the volcano, and rising to a height of 18,000 ft.

Many buildings around nearby towns of Malang and Probolinggo were covered by a light coating of ash 2 hours after the eruption. On 29th November 2000 an eruption occurred at Mt Bromo volcano mountain. An ash plume drifted 40 km from the crater.

On 3rd March 1995 an eruption produced ashfall 20 km away. Eruptions began at in early June 1980. Incandescent tephra was ejected, and glowing bombs reached 400 m from the crater. On 21st June ash emissions reached a height of 900 m. During the peak erupted on 20-21 June, 480 eruption were recorded during a 24 hour period.

Bromo mountain Eruption occured from 15 February to 27 March 1948 destroyed 500 hectares of land on NE of volcano. This was the strongest eruption since 1804. On 7th August 1929 eruptions began at Mt Bromo. Ash fell over Malang until 25th August.
