Papua New Guinea

Published May 14th, 2012

Impressions from East New Britan, an island of the Papua New Guinea archipelago, where I've been in July/August 2011. Luckily local volcano Tavurvur put up a show and showed some impressive ash eruptions. It's been active for a couple of days only as since 2009 it showed no activity at all.

Big Bang

Tavurvur volcano in Papua New Guinea, located at the eastern end of New Britain island, the Rabaul caldera, ejects an ash plume rising up some 1.2km high.

Tavurvur's Cauldron

Tavurvur volcano is located at the most eastern end of New Britain island, a part of Papua New Guinea.

The small but pretty naughty fire mountain is part of the Rabaul Caldera, a highly complex volcanic system with a 30-35km³ magma chamber.
