Lolo (also known as Auwers) volcano is a small andesitic stratovolcano 13 km north of Pago volcano in New Britain.
It has a nearly symmetrical shape with steep 35 deg upper slopes above 300 m elevation, and lower more gently inclined 20 deg slopes at its base between 150 and 250 m elevation. The diameter at its base if about 4 km.
Lolo has a shallow well preserved summit crater 250 m long, 175 m wide, and 60 m deep. Its slopes are cut by a regular pattern of radial erosion gullies up to 30 m deep and parts of the upper slopes are unvegetated.
Well-preserved lava flows from Lolo can be seen from the air, but their age is unknown.
