The Global Volcanism Program has no activity reports for Hydrographers Range.
The Global Volcanism Program has no Weekly Reports available for Hydrographers Range.
The Global Volcanism Program has no Bulletin Reports available for Hydrographers Range.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Hydrographers Range. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Hydrographers Range 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 Hydrographers Range.
|The Hydrographers Range, seen here from the west, is a forested, deeply dissected volcanic massif extending from the eastern margin of Mount Lamington (lower right) to the northern coast of Papua New Guinea. Most activity took place during the Pleistocene, but perfectly preserved cinder cones and explosion craters on the southern side and on the high country overlooking Songade village on the coast suggest that some Holocene activity occurred. This 1947 photo was made prior to Lamington's catastrophic eruption in 1951.

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.

|Large Eruptions of Hydrographers Range||Information about large Quaternary eruptions (VEI >= 4) is cataloged in the Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions (LaMEVE) database of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).|
|WOVOdat||WOVOdat is a database of volcanic unrest; instrumentally and visually recorded changes in seismicity, ground deformation, gas emission, and other parameters from their normal baselines. It is sponsored by the World Organization of Volcano Observatories (WOVO) and presently hosted at the Earth Observatory of Singapore.|
|EarthChem||EarthChem develops and maintains databases, software, and services that support the preservation, discovery, access and analysis of geochemical data, and facilitate their integration with the broad array of other available earth science parameters. EarthChem is operated by a joint team of disciplinary scientists, data scientists, data managers and information technology developers who are part of the NSF-funded data facility Integrated Earth Data Applications (IEDA). IEDA is a collaborative effort of EarthChem and the Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS).|
