Lolobau Island lies just off the northern coast of New Britain, west of Cape Deschamp. Lolobau was constructed on the western rim of a 6-km-wide caldera. Eruptive activity from vents on the flank was observed in the early 20th century. Photo by Robert Citron, 1970 (Smithsonian Institution; courtesy of William Melson)
