Details for: Lopevi
The conical Lopevi volcano is seen here in an aerial view from the NW, with youthful lava flows erupted from NW-SE-trending fissures forming the barren slopes in the foreground. The small 7-km-wide conical island, known locally as Vanei Vollohulu, is one of Vanuatu's most active volcanoes. Historical eruptions at the 1413-m-high volcano date back to the mid-19th century. The island was evacuated following major eruptions in 1939 and 1960. Photo by Karoly Nemeth, 2005 (Massey University).
