Flores island is one of the Lesser Sunda islands located in the eastern part of Sumbawa and Komodo National Park with an approximately area of 14,300km2. This island is the largest island on the east nusa tenggara region. Flores island is a home of the unique culture, nature beauties and more.. It lies between Sumbawa and Timor islands is an abbreviation of Cabo da Flores which was used by Portuguese sailor in the 17th century to identify the cape on the eastern end of the islands because of its underwater gardens. Divided by mountain chains and volcanoes, the island populated by ethnic groups with their own traditions and languages. Predominantly Catholic, the have retained several aspects of the Portuguise culture such as the Easter parade held annually at Larantuka on the eastern part of the island and the Royal Regalia of the former King of Sikka.

 

Mt. Kelimutu, 1.690m fifty years ago, had three lakes, one lake was blue green, one fiery green and one red. Thirty years later, the colors had changed to blue, red brown and cafe au lait. Now, Ata Bupu (Lake) is a dramatic dark-brown. Ata Polo are dark red-brown, and only Nuwa Muri remains aquamarine or turquoise as it apparently always was. No one can explain the cause of such color changes except to suppose that different minerals are dissolved in the waters of each lake.

The countryside surrounding the lake, though no longer so "natural" as in the days of early Dutch visitors - some hundred years ago - is still mountainous and dramatic enough with panoramic views all side

Flores island is one of the island on East Nusa Tenggara province. It stretches between the east longitudes of 118° and 125°, and between the latitudes of 8° and 8,58° south and extends over a length of 360kms, NW of Australia. It thus belongs to the South-eastern islands of the Indonesian archipelago (Nusa Tenggara province) with, in particular, the islands of Timor and Sumba.

Flores becomes one of the biggest island on the territory of East Nusa Tenggara or NTT which comprises 566 islands, including many smaller islands which are not in-habitated and unnamed. The three main islands are Flores, Sumba and Timor from which comes the term 'Flobamor', which has been familiar as one of the names of NTT.

From a geodynamical point of view, this island, flanked to the North by the Flores basin and to the South by the Savu basin, is volcanically active with at least 13 live volcanoes. It also corresponds to an area of intense seismic activity (12th December 1992 earthquake, magnitude 7.5).

Stratigraphic and magmatic (geochronology, geochemistry) analysis shows that Flores is a "young" island, emerging probably in the upper Oligocene, surely by mid-Miocene.

In detail we distinguish :
»» A probably Oligocene cycle - middle to upper Miocene, characterised by :

»»- An E-W volcanic axis (Kiro Formation) where 17 sampled lavas yield radiometric ages between 16 Ma and 8.4 Ma (end Burdigalian to mid Tortonian) and one lava between 27.7 Ma and 25.7 Ma (terminal Oligocene)

»»- Heterochronous lateral sedimentary and volcano sedimentary deposits, with excessively reworked microfaunas. We distinguish nonetheless, from base to top, the turbiditic tufacious mid-Miocene Nangapanda Formation, the neritic to reef limestone middle to upper Miocene Bari Formation, the chalky tufacious (with pumices) upper Miocene Laka Formation

»»- An essentially volcanic terminal Miocene to Plio-Quaternary cycle where 13 samples including 2 granodiorites have been dated radiometrically at 6.7 Ma to 1.2 Ma.

Geochemical analysis of the volcanic rocks from the two cycles previously described (major elements, trace elements, ...) shows we are dealing with insular arc orogenic magmatism linked to a subduction. Flores is, with regards to this aspect, at the oriental end of the Sonde complex with, from West to East, the islands of Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok and Sumbawa.

From a regional and chronological point of view, volcanic activity starts on Flores when that of Sumba, having begun in the upper Cretaceous, ceases. Thus, during the Oligocene, Sumba island leaves its active arc position for the external forearc basin, while Flores takes over the volcanic activity.

During the Plio-Quaternary, the Australian continental plate, coming from the South, collides to the East with the Eurasian plate, at the Timor. Nonetheless, premises of collision are felt to the West, near the area of study, although still in the subduction system, with the net surrection of Sumba and the development of a relatively modest meridian compression facing Flores, marked by a network of active conjugate faults and, North of the island, the North verging "Flores sea" thrust, absorbing a part of generated shortening
