Differnce of Mount Merapi And Mount Bromo Characteristics – The eruption of Mount Merapi and Mount Bromo caused a tremendous disaster and a huge loss. One of the effects of the losses caused during the eruption of these two mountains occurred in small industrial activities in the surrounding area, for example around Merapi, especially in the District of Cangkringan, Sleman until the cessation of industrial activities. Mapping and classification of the effects of eruptions and the characteristics of the two mountains are needed. The results obtained from the study showed that almost 50% of the conditions around the peak were severely damaged. If we have not been able to know a characteristic as well as the impacts that occur, then for a disaster mitigation process going forward it will be more difficult. Therefore, it is necessary to identify the characteristics to find out how large the eruption of the two mountains is.

Mount Bromo And Mount Merapi

mount bromo or mount merapi

Mount Bromo has an altitude of 2,392 meters above sea level in four regions, namely Probolinggo Regency, Pasuruan, Lumajang, and Malang Regency. The body of Mount Bromo is interlocked between valleys and canyons with a caldera or sea of ​​sand covering an area of ​​about 10 square kilometers. Mount Bromo has a crater with garistengah ± 800 meters (north-south) and ± 600 meters (east-west). While the danger area is a circle with radius 4 km from the center of Bromo crater. The mountain has characteristics or small eruption models. The characteristics possessed are different from other buildings such as Merapi which is classified as high volcanic. If an eruption occurs, the material spewed by Bromo is in the form of sand and ash with a radius of 6 to 10 kilometers. While the 129 volcanoes in the Indonesian territory of Mount Merapi are among the most active. Merapi is a volcano with Strato-volcano type and in petrologimagma Merapi is andesite-basaltic. Towering as high as 2978 m in the heart of Java, Merapi has a diameter of 28 km, an area of ​​300-400 km2 and a volume of 150 km3. Posisigeographic Merapi 7

Central Java Province and Yogyakarta Special Region. Merapi is formed as a dynamic on an archipelago due to the subduction of meeting the Indo-Australian plate with an Asian plate. The dynamics of Merapi eruption are generally preceded by lava dome growth followed by hot clouds, incandescent lava and pyroclastic falls. The main danger that threatens about 40,000 people living in Disaster Prone Areas is Pyroclastic Flow or the flow of clouds in addition to secondary hazards that can occur in the rainy season. Merapi eruption is included frequently in the last 100 years, with an average of one eruption within 2-5 years. Beyond the threat of disaster that can happen at any time, Merapim has social and economic aspects that are important for the progress of the surrounding area. Material of Merapi eruption such as sand and stone becomes a supporting development in Yogyakarta and Central Java as well as agricultural products produced

Mount Bromo Eruption Characters

Mount Bromo has different eruption characteristics compared to other volcanoes. If we compare with Mount Merapi which is classified as high volcanic, Mount Bromo has small eruption characteristics. Material released during the eruption of Mount Bromo can be in the form of sand and ash with a radius of 6-10 km. This is different from the material spewed out by Mount Merapi which can be very thick lava which can clog the crater mouth so that the gas pressure in it increases which ultimately makes the hot cloud “wedhus gembel” come out. about the caldera in the Tengger Mountains itself, because Mount Bromo itself is a volcano in the caldera region of the Tengger Mountains.

Based on its shape, Mount Bromo belongs to the type of caldera, which is a volcano formed from a very strong explosion which then throws the tip of the mountain itself. The notion of the caldera is a volcanic feature formed from the fall of the land after volcanic eruptions. The term caldera is often confused with volcanic craters. The word “caldera” itself comes from Spanish, which means pan. There are two theories regarding the formation of the caldera, namely the caldera formed through large eruptions and the caldera formed through small eruptions. When the eruption takes place, the gases inside the liquid magma continue to press until finally it can become an energy source for the release of magma. When all these materials and gases come out, this makes the magma chamber empty and finally the top of the volcano sinks down and is filled with other material. Some also form a new volcano inside.

Then, for the second theory, caldera formation can be caused by small eruptions. When the eruption took place, the molten lava burst through the gap beside the mountain. Finally, the gap was the exit of the magma from the magma chamber. Then just like the first theory, the top of the volcano then sinks down and forms the caldera. Both theories basically work according to the law of gravity. When the magma chamber becomes empty, the gravitational force pulls the wall up the mountain down and finally there is subsidence that forms the caldera.

Based on the theory of caldera formation above, the formation of the caldera on Mount Bromo is included in the first theory, namely the formation through small eruptions. That is because the volcanic activity that is not too large, such as Mount Merapi and its eruption are classified as small eruptions. In addition, Mount Bromo is also located in the caldera region of the Tengger Mountains, causing volcanic activity in the magma chamber to be divided with other volcanoes.
