The eruption from Manam that began in 1974 included peaks of activity that produced pyroclastic flows during 1982, 1984, and 1992-94. This December 1992 photo shows a new lava field that was emplaced down the NE valley from August to November 1992. Lava flows from the 1992 eruptions reached the sea on the NE coast and destroyed a village.
