Details for: Bamus
Symmetrical 2248-m-high Bamus volcano, also referred to as South Son, is seen here from the NE beyond the upper slopes of Ulawun volcano, known as the Father. These two volcanoes are the highest in the 1000-km-long Bismarck volcanic arc. Bamus stratovolcano is draped by rainforest and contains a breached summit crater filled with a lava dome. A satellitic cone is located on the southern flank, and a prominent 1.5-km-wide crater with two small adjacent cones is situated halfway up the SE flank.
