Dukono volcanDukono is a remote volcano on the island of Halmahera (Indonesia). There is not much information available due to its remote position, but Dukono is one of the world's most active volcanoes and has been in persistent activity since 1933.
Introduction:During a major eruption in 1550, a lava flow filled in the strait between Halmahera and the north-flank cone of Gunung Mamuya. Fatalities occured during that eruption, too.
Dukono is a complex volcano with a broad, low profile, multiple summit peaks and overlapping craters. Malupang Wariang, 1 km SW of Dukono's summit crater complex, contains a 700 x 570 m crater that has also been active during historical time.
