Krakatoa Volcano Eruption (by stop animation)

<!–[CDATA[

Krakatoa or Krakatau or Krakatao or Krakatowa is a volcanic island in the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra in Indonesia. The name is used for the island group, the main island (also called Rakata), and the volcano as a whole. It has erupted repeatedly, massively, and with disastrous consequences throughout recorded history. The best known eruption culminated in a series of massive explosions on August 26-27 1883, which was among the most violent volcanic events in modern times. With a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 6, it was equivalent to 200 megatons of TNT — about 13000 times the yield of the Little Boy bomb (13 to 16 KT), which devastated Hiroshima, Japan.]]>
