 Krakatoa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Krakatoa (Indonesian name: Krakatau) is a volcano near the Indonesian island of Rakata in the Sunda Strait.
The origin of the spelling Krakatoa is unclear, but may have been the result of a typographical error made in a British source reporting on the massive eruption of 1883.
Reports in 2005 indicated that activity at Anak Krakatau was increasing.

Krakatau is an unusual site in many ways, not least in having been the subject of continuing (if intermittent) studies for well over a century.
Although different forest types have been recognized on the Krakatau islands, these "communities"; are not discrete and forest successional pathways are in practice more complex than the simple summary successional schema reproduced in the text books might be taken to imply.
The interior forests of the Krakatau islands continue to gain new species of higher plants, and the balance of species in the canopy is undoubtedly in a state of flux, with strong directional shifts in the importance of particular species being evident over the period between 1979 and 1997.

 MSN Encarta - Krakatau
Krakatau, also Krakatoa or Rakata, small volcanic island, southwestern Indonesia, in the Sunda Strait, between Java and Sumatra.
Until the night of August 26-27, 1883, Krakatau had an area of 47 sq km (18 sq mi); at that time, a volcanic eruption and its consequent explosions destroyed most of the island, so the present area is only 15 sq km (6 sq mi).
The eruption produced huge ocean waves called tsunamis that reached an estimated height of 30 m (100 ft) and traveled 13,000 km (8,000 mi); these waves drowned about 34,000 people along the coasts of Java and Sumatra and destroyed incalculable amounts of property.

To determine whether Krakatau was creditworthy from 1988 through 1995, we analyzed financial ratios from 1985 through 1995, consistent with the Department's long standing practice of using three years prior to the year under examination, to address factors B and C. The Department prepared a memorandum in which it analyzed Krakatau's financial ratios.
Although at verification, we received a copy of a study prepared by Krakatau, as noted in the Verification Report of Krakatau at page 5, the study was prepared on June 20, 1990; however, the Ministry of Finance approved the equity infusion on May 30, 1990, as reported in respondents' responses.
We disagree with petitioners' arguments that Krakatau was uncreditworthy because it clearly was unable to meet its costs and fixed financial obligations during the period 1985 through 1995 and, hence, was required to obtain debt-to-equity conversions from the GOI in both 1991 and 1995.

 Historical Events - Krakatau, 1883
The eruption of Krakatau, located in the Sunda straits between the islands of Java and Sumatra in what is now Indonesia, is probably the most famous volcanic eruption in history.
The 1883 eruption of Krakatau is, as befits the destruction that it caused, one of the most intensively studied in history.
Different stages of the Krakatau eruption could therefore have involved generation of tsunami by entry of pyroclastic flows into the sea, caldera collapse, submarine explosive eruption, and stratovolcano lateral collapse.

Krakatau filed its letter within the deadline specified for notifying the Department of difficulties faced in responding to the questionnaire in accordance with section 782(c)(1) of the Act and section 351.301(c)(2) of the Department's regulations.
On April 26, 1999, Krakatau requested that the Department reconsider its April 20, 1999, decision and excuse it from the reporting requirement because of its relatively small shipments of the subject merchandise to the United States during the POI and because the Department in [[Page 41207]] past cases has excused companies under similar circumstances.
Because the margin we have assigned to Krakatau is 35.01 percent, and thus exceeds 25 percent, we have imputed knowledge of dumping to Krakatau.
