Geography and Climate

Geography

Klaten borders on Boyolali Regency in the North, Sukoharjo Regency and Wonogiri Regency in the East, and Special Region of Yogyakarta to the South and West. Candi Prambanan, one of the biggest Hindu structures in Indonesia, is in the regency.

The 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake damaged the area, located near to the active Mount Merapi volcano in central Java. The 2010 eruptions of Mount Merapi had a great impact on Klaten and its surrounding areas. A few of the victims who were affected by the eruption came from the region of Klaten. The volcanic eruptions were so loud they caused panic and a rush for residents to seek refuge.

Klaten has a humid (> 0.65 p/pet) climate. The landscape is mostly covered with rainfed croplands, residential areas, and isolated stands of trees. The climate is classified as a Tropical Monsoon (short dry season, monsoon rains other months), with a tropical moist forest biozone . The soil in the area is high in nitosols, andosols (nt), soil with deep, clay-enriched lower horizon with shiny ped surfaces.[4]
