chris tobin's insight:

Indonesia has 76 volcanoes that have erupted, 2nd to Japan for active volcano eruptions. 

Indonesia is located between:

 

2 continental plates = Eurasian and Australian

2 ocean plates = Phllipine Sea and Pacific

(www.volcano.oregon state.edu/vsdocs/vold_images/southern

 

The Ocean plate subducts beneath the Eurasian continental plate.  Sunda arc has 3000 km line of volcanos (Sumatra to Banda Sea)

Volcanic arc in Western Indonesia,= chain of active volcanos :Sumatra, Java, Bali, Nusa Tenggara islands

 

The Pacific and Austalian plate movements control eastern Indonesia. 

 

Western Indonesia + Semangko Fault

Pali-Koro fault is in central Indonesia.
