Description :
This paper reviews the eruption sequence and reexamines some of the more problematic and challenging volcanological aspects of the Krakatau event. Various hypotheses about the cause of the tsunamis and explosions are reviewed and it is concluded that the cause of both is most likely related to the sudden emission of large pulses of magma that led to formation of the Krakatau ignimbrite.
