History of eruption;
  • The History of Gunung Lewotobi Men was written by Kemmerling (1929), Stehn (1940), Neumann van Padang (1951), and Kriswati (2006). The recorded history of Mount Lewotobi Male eruption was in 1650, 1700, 1861, 1868, 1869, 1907, 1909, 1910, 1914, 1932, 1933, 1939, 1940, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1999 , and 2002-2003. Between 1650 and 1700 there was an eruption of lava flows…
  • besides that, the History of Gunung Lewotobi Perempuan was known only in 1921 and 1935. Eruption was written by Kemmerling, Stehn, and Neumann van Padang (Kusumadinata, 1979)…

  2. 1,703 m (5.587 ft); Mount Lewotobi Female
Type of eruption;
The eruption character of MountLewotobi seen from its eruption history experienced several changes. In 1932 there was a formation of lava domes and the eruption process resulted in the emergence of avalanches of hot clouds. After the eruption the character of Lewotobi eruption was more of a magmatic eruption which produced lava flows. Since 1990 the Lewotobi volcanic eruption has been more explosive and has produced pyroclastic falls. So that it can be concluded that the character of Lewotobi mountain eruption is:
a. Explosive eruptions that produce throws of incandescent material and ash deposits
b. Magmatic eruptions that produce lava domes, lava flows, and avalanche hot clouds.…
Topology & Geology;
Mount Lewotobi Male is located side by side with Mount Lewotobi Female. Both volcanoes directly border the sea in the east and south. The Morphology of Mount Lewotobi Male is pointed and steep. A crater is at its peak, and the wall is built by lava. The crater opens northeast. There is a small crater located north of this main crater, probably formed by phreatic eruption.
The structure that develops in the Mount Lewotobi area is a normal fault that has an northeast – southwest direction, volcanic alignment trending northwest – southeast which is manifested by the presence of eruption points along the direction of alignment. This normal fault activates Mount Lewotobi Male, while the volcanic line reactivates Mount Lewotobi for Female and Male…
