In this video we are going over the history of Krakatoa. From the 416 A.D. eruption that separated Java and Sumatra in two, and flooded a large part of the country in the process from the resulting Tsunami – to the 535 A.D. eruption that was a possible super volcanic scale event. We document every tsunami and eruption all the way up to the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa and resulting devastating Tsunami Tsunami. Krakatoa is an abnormally powerful volcano, with horribly explosive eruptions, with a frequency that isn’t found in any other volcano on Earth. Its ability to erupt, cause a tsunami, then grow over 400 meters out of the nothing in a span of under one hundred years is very strange. The 535 A.D. eruption, however, is largely viewed as the most devastating and powerful eruption Krakatoa ever had. With effects reaching far beyond its local area and triggering a worldwide famine through the change of climate, which ultimately led to crop failure and famine due to how much fallout was released which weakened the suns ability to heat the earth properly for years.
The 1883 eruption was a VEI 6 event (Volcanic explosivity index). To put things into perspective, 2018 was a VEI 3 event. Half as weak as the 1883 eruption. VEI 7 and VEI 8 volcanos, are what we, in modern days, refer to as Super Volcanoes. The 535 AD eruption, was stronger than the 1883 eruption. Which means it was possibly a VEI 7 eruption. Meaning Krakatoa at that date, could’ve erupted to the same scale as Tambora, which also was a VEI 7 in it’s last eruption and was the most fatal volcanic eruption in the past 5000 years, with the 1883 Krakatoa event being the second most.
This is Part 1 of my two part series on the history of Krakatoa. From it’s first recorded eruption by the Ancient Javanese people in
the “Javanese Book of Kings” to 1883.
In part two we will be going over what happened after the 1883 Krakatoa eruption all the way up until 2018.
