Plate Tectonics: “Krakatoa/1883”

The Plate Tectonics series explores something that fascinates me.  Seriously, look it up. It’s rad.

Krakatoa is a volcano in Indonesia that lies at the convergent boundary between the Eurasian and Indo-Australian tectonic plates.  This is a subduction zone where the the more massive plate forces the other underneath it.

The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) destroyed over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera.

Why the Braille again?  In doing the Maps for My Father series, I discovered that I dig it.
