Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Sakar
The small circular island at the top-center is Sakar, the NE-most of a chain of volcanic islands off the northern coast of Papua New Guinea. The 8 x 10 km wide island, seen in this Space Shuttle image with north to the upper left, is an incised stratovolcano with a summit crater lake. No historical eruptions are known from Sakar, but a pyroclastic cone on the southern flank of the volcano may be of Holocene age. The 50-km-wide island of Umboi, whose left side is cut by a large caldera breached to the NE, fills the center of the image. NASA Space Shuttle image STS50-100-D, 1992 (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/).
