Photo Gallery

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.
