Madilogo is an isolated, well-preserved pyroclastic cone located on the SW side of the Owen Stanley Range about 50 km NE of Port Moresby. The small volcano, which was not recognized until 1969, rises about 250 m from the flood plain of the Naoro River. A lava flow extends 1 km to the west from the breached summit crater. The pyroclastic cone and lava flow were considered on the basis of revegetation rates and soil profiles to probably be less than 1000 years old and possibly as young as a few hundred years (Blake, 1976).

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Madilogo. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Madilogo page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Madilogo.

The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Madilogo.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
