Details for: Ranakah
A new lava dome, named Anak Ranakah (center) was formed in 1987 on the outer flanks of the poorly known Poco Leok caldera on western Flores Island. The new dome was located in an area without previous historical eruptions at the base of the large older lava dome of Gunung Ranakah. Anak Ranakah ("Child of Ranakah"), seen here from the SW, is part of an arcuate group of lava domes extending westward from Gunung Ranakah.
