The volcano in Bali Gunung Agung took a month to erupt

Based on information from the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG), the current update on the mountain melets in Bali, that the possibility of magma from inside the mountain that came out into lava at the top of the crater of Mount Agung is now cooling and eventually hardened. If the lava has come out to the surface, the lava will quickly cool down. The more up the thicker the lava clot. It depends on the surrounding air temperature. Freezing lava of course affects the movement of magma from the stomach of Mount Agung.

There are still many questions that need to be revealed related to the freezing of lava at this peak of the mountain. The question then is whether the cooled lava because the magma of Mount Agung ran out of energy or precisely when rising to the surface is blocked by a hardened lava clot.

2017-11-25
In addition to an update on the puff of smoke at the peak of volcanoes in Bali is diminishing, also updates about SO2 levels are detected also experienced a very drastic decline, which is 20x lower than last week. SO2 is in the air when the first eruption occurs to be a warning to avoid this compound because it is very toxic and can interfere with breathing. Is this a sign of Mount Agung already entering the final phase of eruption?

The first possibility, if the energy of Mount Agung has begun to decrease then the eruption does not occur, because the magma can not break the frozen lava blockage that amounts to 20000000 cubic meters or 1/3 of the volcano volume in Mount Agung. This update is very useful to be able to perform further action related to the handling of natural disasters volcano eruption in Bali.

The information and updates of this volcano in Bali will continue to be submitted. So people do not panic when there is greater activity on Mount Agung in Bali.

The condition of the volcano in Bali is not like a few days ago, when the highest mountain in Bali was always spraying dark, dark-colored volcanic ash. This latest update can certainly confuse citizens and related authorities. Because the residents are already waiting, but Mount Agung looks more calm at this time.

Although the latest update on the eruption activity of Mount Agung appears calm, the relevant authorities explain that activity inside the crater of the mountain continues to occur. It is recorded on a device that records an ongoing tremor shock. Small and large earthquakes can be felt up to several kilometers from the top of the mountain. This earthquake shows that the mountain is still active and can erupt at any time. The existence of magma movement inside the mountain urges upward. Although it can not be observed from a mountain monitoring site, the effusion or growth of lava to the surface of the crater is still ongoing. Based on the results of earthquake recording.

The latest update on Friday night about the condition of volcanoes in Bali, that earthquake shook Karangasem regency on Friday night approximately at 09:54 pm. An earthquake of magnitude 3.5 SR occurred at 8.27 LS - 115.64 east longitude (17 kilometers northeast of Karangasem).

Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG), does not dismiss if the earthquake is related to the activity of Mount Agung. Although the location is quite far from the mountain.

Based on the latest update about the volcano, about the earthquake that occurred east of Karangasem regency as far as 17 kilometers, it is clear that the magma in the earth is very unstable and move the earth's crust. It also shows that there are still many magma still pressing the earth's crust in Bali, so it can exit through Mount Agung, the highest volcano in Bali.

Because of the last few days Bali has been raining non-stop.

The highway near Mount Agung in Besakih village also looks deserted. Not only that, the cocoa farm belongs to the residents also looks dormant.

Its intensity is high and can make the sky more acidic and very dangerous if inhaled directly.

The ash concentration impact of the eruption of Mount Agung is the highest found in the East of Bali Island. Once released normally SO2 or sulfur dioxide may turn into small aerosol sulfate particles. This can change the brightness of the cloud and affect regional precipitation patterns. SO2 is a toxic compound with a strong odor.

Chemical reactions that occur when SO2 meets with other compounds in the air then these compounds can form acid rain. Volcanic ash spread from the magmatic eruption of Mount Agung until now still blanket air space. Even had blanketed the sky above the airport I Gusti Ngurah Rai.

Lombok Airport was closed on Sunday (November 26, 2017) but was declared safe return for flight on Monday morning, November 27, 2017.
The closure of airports in Bali and Lombok due to ash coming from the eruption of Mount Agung, Ash blowing southward, to the airspace of Denpasar.

Ngurah Rai airport authorities have issued a NOTAM, which states the airport was closed for approximately 24 hours, starting from Monday (27/11/2017) 07:00 am, until Tuesday (28/11/2017) at 07:15 am.
According to a study conducted by NASA, volcanic ash could impair the functioning of propellers on turboprop or jet engines in turbofan planes, vital components in aircraft flights.

It has been proven from an incident that had been experienced by Boeing 747-200 aircraft belonging to British Airways. The plane with callsign Speedbird 9 (flight number BA09) on June 24, 1982 made a flight route Kuala Lumpur - Perth. In the middle of the journey, while crossing the island of Java, Indonesia, Speedbird 9 trapped in the middle of the ash eruption of Mount Galunggung.

The four B747 engines died from vacuuming the silica of Galunggung. The pilot then decided to lower the cruising altitude from 36,000 feet to 12,000 feet. Luckily, the pilot finally managed to re-start the engine aircraft after flying at lower altitudes and free from the siege of volcanic ash.

Very small silica dust, diameter between 6 microns to 2 mm, can be carried by the wind easily, and because ejected from the crater of the volcano, the dust can soar up to the height of roaming the plane.

Because it is so small and light, volcanic ash is difficult to remove, and takes a long time to disappear completely if action is not taken immediately. If this happens and is left, then for a long time the dust that sticks in the body or components of the aircraft can cause delicate cracks in the body of the aircraft.

For the people and tourists around Mount Agung to avoid climbing and do not carry out any activities in the hazard prediction zone that is inside the crater area of ​​Mount Agung and in all areas within a 6 km radius of the mountain top crater, plus the sectoral extension to the North- Northeast and Southeast-South-Southwest as far as 7.5 km.

Estimated Zone Dangers are dynamic and continuously evaluated and can be changed at any time following the most recent observations of Gunung Agung's observations.

It was reported earlier that Mount Agung erupted on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at around 17:05, issued a phreatic eruption. Then followed by the eruption that occurred on Saturday, November 25, 2017 at around 17:20, then at around 09:00 pm Mount Agung issued a magmatic eruption.

The volcano in Bali Gunung Agung took a month to erupt

The volcano in Bali, Gunung Agung until Sunday afternoon (26 November 2017) is still experiencing magmatic eruption. Based on information from the Center for Mitigation of Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation, explains that smoke clouds of volcanic ash are visually steeping higher, thick with lava pressure increasingly strong towards the surface reaching the base of the crater of Mount Agung.

Lava infusion to the bottom of the crater the greater the volume discharge. Hope this eruption is effusive. This means that the lava eruption is expected to flow from the top to a predictable direction. The crater is full and the lava is overflowing, so it is not explosive (big explosion). If it is explosive then lava explosion will occur, big lava will blast into the sky and reach unpredictable areas. So it can cause a greater loss.

It is feared that a sudden increase in lava volume discharges in a short time, while the space owned by magma channels is too small.
This is what often causes explosive eruptions.

Currently the bottom hole of the crater has been destroyed or increased. Lava is already at the bottom of the crater and continues to grow to meet the base of the crater. With the current eruption condition, if referring to the eruption of 1963, it may still take about 1 month for Mount Agung to explosive eruption.

Bali has many mountains. In the middle of this island is a cluster of mountains that stretch from the western part of the island to the east. Clearly, the north side with the south is separated by a mountain. The mountains in the middle of the most famous island of Bali are Mount Agung and Batur. Because these mountains make Bali a very religious and mystical island, with a high spiritual nuance of the Balinese. Because the mountain is believed to be the abode of the gods, ancestral spirits, and various other magical elements.

The island of Bali is also known as Pulau Seribu Pura / island of the gods, as it has thousands of temples scattered throughout the island. Pura Besakih is the mother of thousands of temples in Bali. This temple is located in the central part of the mountain slope. But there is one temple that is located higher than Pura Besakih, is Pura Pasaragung located almost at the top of the mountain, very close to the crater.

Besakih Temple is always crowded by the people during the celebration

Besakih Temple is located on the southwestern slopes of Mount Agung located in Besakih Village, Rendang District, Karangasem Regency. It is the largest temple in Indonesia because it is a complex of many temples within a region. Consisting of a single main temple namely Pura Penataran Agung Besakih, like a kingdom with various states, Pura Penataran Agung Besakih is the king of the temple companion that surrounds it, 1 Pura Basukian and 17 other temples.

Referred to as the mother of the temple in Bali as a center of religious activities of Hindus from all temples in Bali. By using the main location at Penataran Agung Temple Besakih. As the main temple, this temple certainly has the most places and buildings for worship.

The existence of Pura Besakih is not only a place of worship of God. But it has a connection with Mount Agung. The highest mountain in Bali is believed to be the center of the natural government of the spirits of the ancestors, the nature of the gods who became God's messenger for the island of Bali. That is why this mountain is very guarded for its sanctity.

Besakih Temple also contains philosophical meanings about cultural elements such as knowledge system, life equipment and technology, social organization, livelihood, language system, religion and ceremony and artistry.

It is not yet clear why Pura Besakih was chosen as a center by the ancestors of the Balinese in ancient times, but almost certainly because this mountain has been a place of life since prehistoric times. It is estimated that the base of Pura Penataran Agung Besakih stone and some other temples that resemble megalithic to the pyramid, at least about 2000 years old. Besakih Temple has also been included in the list of UNESCO world heritage site proposal since 1995 but until now still not approved.

Yet there is another historical evidence of the origin of Pura Besakih. That ancient time a pastor from Java took a thousand students to open a new recital in Bali, precisely in the Village Taro. Many mystical events occur when it begins to open the forest. Many of the pastor's followers die unnaturally. Then the priest did the meditations, and was told that Bali is a very haunted and consecrated place. Thus the minister made a ritual on the slopes of Mount Agung to request permission from the gods and ancestors to open the forest. After the ritual the process of clearing the forest becomes smooth and without significant constraints. Since then the location of the ritual becomes a place to build Pura Besakih to this day.
