Details for: Langila
Langila, one of the most active volcanoes of New Britain, consists of a group of four small overlapping composite cones on the lower eastern flank of the extinct Talawe volcano. Steam rises on September 4 from Craters 2 (left) and 3 (right) during a 1970 eruption. The rim of Crater 1 forms the center horizon in this view from the NW. Frequent mild-to-moderate explosive eruptions, sometimes accompanied by lava flows, have been recorded since the 19th century from the three active craters at the summit of Langila.
