Anak Krakatau volcano collapse

Post by NatalieKelly » Fri Oct 04, 2019 1:26 pm

Heya, Came across this article reviewing the collapse of the volcano and how looking back the warning signs were there...

"Anak Krakatau, the Indonesian island volcano that collapsed last December triggering a huge tsunami, did produce clear warning signals before the event."

"Thomas Walter, from the German Research Centre for Geosciences GFZ in Potsdam, said any of the different signals viewed individually could not have been used to predict what happened at the island volcano, but taken together they might well have raised a red flag."
