- Gamalama Volcano is stratovolcano located in Ternate Island. Gamalama has been intermittently active for many decades and the biggest eruption history happened in 1775 which killed about 141 people and destroyed some villages around the volcano. As a main city, Ternate has more complete facilities and good accessibility, better than other islands. From demographic perspective, Ternate has a high population density living in the flanks of Gamalama Volcano, especially in the east and south part. Since Ternate has limited natural resources, it creates a high dependence to other islands. The aims of this research is to assess social-economic and physical vulnerability towards volcanic hazards of Gamalama Volcano. Secondary data from Potensi Desa combined with field observations were used in this research. We used Spatial Multi-Criteria Evaluation (SMCE) for analyzing the vulnerabilities. The results of total vulnerability map analysis show that the high vulnerable areas are mostly located in the western part of the Island which is match with two other vulnerabilities map which are economic and social vulnerability.
