I'm looking at taking a teaching job in Indonesia in the next month or two. Not sure where yet.

So... volcanic multi-eruption.

Anyone there have anything to report? I'm reading that one of the ash clouds is headed for Bali.

What's the impact on life there?

Don't quite get the purpose of your post.....unless you were planning on flying into Bali next day or two! Indonesia is 'the ring of fire'-coming to work here you have to be prepared for the possibility of earthquakes and volcanoes having an impact on the environment.....for example, massive quake in Tasik had my school in Jakarta seriously shaking for 2-3 minutes back in 2009....kids were screaming and running down the stairs-so much for emergency procedures......

Thanks for your response, and please excuse my noob status. Wink Your patience is appreciated.

I'm currently in the US, applying for jobs in Bali, and they're showing massive plumes of volcanic ash on the tv. I guess I'm just trying to understand what all life in Indonesia entails in this regard.

If you live in Jakarta, I think the risks are minimal. The fault line is down in the Indian Ocean which is the South Coast of Java. Tsunamis are a risk there. There was a tsunami which killed 500 people in Pangandaran a few years ago. But Jakarta is on the safer North Coast of Java.

To assist, I've been in Denpasar for 11 months working. In that time I have only felt one significant EQ. It was a 6. something in magnitude, 160 Kms south west, where the Australian plate subducts beneath the Eurasian plate. It's par for the course as Tazz informed. Although, our lives are too short to notice anything much of course.

The volcanos are all equidistant from the subduction zone if you look into it, up and down the entire archipelago. There's no getting too much away from them then, Bali has her two active ones Mt Agung and Batur. The most likely impact they are to have upon you is to look wonderful from afar in the early morning light.

The one you mentioned erupting most recently was a few hundred Kms east of here. There were no plumes of anything on Bali except people burning, incense and motorbike exhaust. Rgds
