TRIBUNBATAM.id, YOGYAKARTA - The Center for Geological Disaster Research and Technology Development (BPPTKG) reported that Mount Merapi is still releasing lava avalanches this week.

During monitoring from March 19, 2021 to March 25, 2021, there were two lava avalanches leading to the southeast of the crater of Mount Merapi

This lava drop to the southeast originates from the activity of the lava dome in the middle of the crater.

This week, the lava dome on the southwest side has released 104 avalanches with a maximum sliding distance of up to 1,200 meters.

The lava dome located in the center now has a dome height of 65 meters. 

Meanwhile, the lava dome on the southwest side is 949,000 cubic meters.

The growth rate of this dome reaches 13,000 cubic meters per day.
