Tavurvur cone at Rabaul is seen in eruption in this 25 May 2005 view looking from the NW across Matupit Harbor. Two plumes, one white and the other dark gray, are originating from separate vents. Intermittent small-to-moderate explosive eruptions took place throughout much of the year. The conical peak in the background is Turanguna. Photo by Roy Price, 2005 (University of South Florida).
