What caused the volcano eruptions in Indonesia?

    The 2010 eruption of Mt. Merapi in Indonesia was caused simply by the fact that Indonesia lies on an area of seismic activity.  It is part of the Pacific ring of fire, which is an area that is prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions because of the placement of tectonic plates beneath the Earth.  Although there was an earthquake and resulting tsunami around the same time as the volcano, scientists confirmed that the events are not likely related or causal.
