Résumé:

In the last part of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, Mt. Merapi in Central-Java Indonesia erupted about every 2–5 years. Most of the eruptions were low in explosivity, with VEI-3 or less. Eruptions usually involve the formation of a lava dome, either in the beginning or in the end of the eruptive episode.
