0239 Indonesia - Ring of Fire

private swap 

The Pacific Ring of Fire, or Ring of Fire for short, is an area where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean.
The Pacific Ring of Fire is home to 452 volcanoes in total - that's 75 percent of the world's active and dormant volcanoes.
Both of Indonesia's most active volcanoes – Kelut and Mount Merapi (meaning "mountain of fire") – sit on Java Island.
Other colossal volcanic eruptions that have occurred in Indonesia include the eruption of Krakatau, which reportedly generated the loudest sound ever heard in modern history. Krakatau is a volcanic island located between the islands of Java and Sumatra.
The Toba supervolcano located on the island of Sumatra, which erupted 70,000 years ago, was a global catastrophe, creating six years of volcanic winter.
