Details for: Krummel-Garbuna-Welcker
The Krummel-Garbuna-Welcker volcanic complex at the southern end of the Willaumez Peninsula rises to the WNW across Stetin Bay. The complex consists of three volcanic peaks, Krummel, Garbuna, and Welcker, along a N-S line. The most prominent peaks, Welcker (right) and Krummel (left), anchor the northern and southern sides of the complex, respectively. The lower peaks of the centrally located Garbuna volcano contain a large vegetation-free area that is probably the most extensive thermal field in Papua New Guinea.
