Item Description: Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington, D.C., 1983. Paperback. Book Condition: very good. Large orange quarto; 464 p, b&w illus (some color) & portraits/maps ; 29 cm. On August 26 and 27, 1883, the island volcano Krakatau erupted, ejecting more than four cubic miles of debris and creating a huge plume of gas and ashes that rose to an altitude of thirty miles. Spectacular, fiery sunsets resulted, lighting the skies of North America and Europe in the following months. This was one of history's most terrifying and destructive volcanic eruptions. Great sea waves crested to heights of 118 feet, crashing on the coasts of Java and Sumatra and killing more than 30,000 people. The eruption's loudest blasts were heard nearly 3,000 miles away. Simkin and Fiske have gathered eighty-eight eyewitness accounts, describing the events in the words of people who were there, and have selected twenty-eight scientific interpretations of the various phenomena written over the last one-hundred years. They have illustrated the book with more than 250 photographs, engravings, drawings, and maps, and have traced an extensive chronology of events. The result is a comprehensive volume on this benchmark event-history's most famous eruption. In addition to geologists, oceanographers will be interested in the devastating sea waves, meteorologists in the worldwide atmospheric effects, biologists in the return of life to barren island remnants, but any general reader will be fascinated by the eyewitness accounts of this spectacular eruption and its truly global effects. --WorldCat. || Contents: Preface: Reason(s) for book; procedures; acknowledgments -- 1: Introduction -- Eruption and its importance -- Editorial conventions -- Krakatau in 1883: historical and volcanological context -- Maps -- Chronology -- Notes and references -- 2: Narrative Descriptions: The Eyewitness Accounts -- May-toAugust, 1883 -- August 26-27: the paroxysm -- Java coast -- Sumatra coast -- Straits of Sunda (ships' accounts) -- Batavia and inland Java -- Aftermath; accounts of early visitors to devastated areas -- Java coast -- Sumatra coast -- Straits of Sunda (ships and expeditions) -- Distant descriptions -- Sounds -- Waves -- Volcanic ashfall and floating pumice -- Sunsets and other atmospheric effects -- Media coverage -- Notes and references -- 3: Verbeek's Monograph Of 1885 (First Translation To English) -- Chromolithograph tour seven weeks after the eruption -- Foreword to monograph -- Chronologic narrative -- Krakatau before May, 1883 -- Eruption of May to August 26 -- Paroxysm of August 26-28, and later eruptions -- Discussion -- Causes and theoretical basis of eruptions -- Earthquakes of 1883 -- Ejecta of 1883: volumes and atmospheric effects -- Geology of Krakatau -- Regional geology -- Macroscopic and microscopic petrography of Krakatau -- Chemical compositions of Krakatau rocks -- Meteorological and magnetic phenomena -- Movements of the air -- Collapse volumes -- Movements of the sea -- Volcanic and seismic activity beyond Krakatau in 1883-4 -- Notes and references -- Biography of R D M Verbeek / Ir C Blotwyk -- 4: Scientific Accounts: The Phenomena Interpreted -- Geology -- AD 1680 eruption of Krakatau (Van den Berg, 1884) -- Pumice from Krakatau (Iddings, 1884) -- Volcanic ash from Krakatau (Joly, 1885) -- Volcanic phenomena of the eruption (Judd, 1888) -- Legend of AD 416 eruption chronicle (Judd, 1889) -- Explanation of the 1883 eruption-engulfment hypothesis (Dana, 1890) -- Rockfalls on Krakatu's cliff: the pseudo-eruptions (Cool, 1908) -- Geology and volcanism of the Krakatu group (Stehn, 1929) -- 1883 eruption -- Birth of Anak Krakatu -- 1939 eruption of Anak Krakatu (Neumann van Padang, 1963) -- Calderas of the Krakatau type (Williams, 1941) -- 1883 eruption of Krakatu (self and Rampino, 1981) -- Most recent activity (SEAN bulletin, 1981) -- Development of Anak Krakatau (Sudradjat, 1982) -- Waves: air and sea -- Explosive air waves and sounds (Strachey, 1888) -- Sea waves; the devastating tsunami (Wharton, 1888) -- Air waves producing distant sea wave.
