This view from the summit of Ternate Island shows the Halmahera Island volcanoes of Jailolo in the foreground, Gamkonora on the left, and flat-topped Ibu volcano on the right. Jailolo volcano has no known historical eruptions, but youthful lava flows are located on the eastern flank. Gamkonora is one of Halmahera's most active volcanoes, while Ibu, with its nested summit craters, one of which has a crater lake, has erupted only once in historical time, in 1911.
