2008 false eruption report
The Rabaul volcano observatory (RVO) reported that Balbi volcano had an eruption on 7 May 2008. The report could not be verified and there was no ash visible on satellite images.

A few, mostly aerial observations are available for Balbi volcano's activity in the 1980s and 1990s. The confirm vigorous fumarolic activity mainly in the second summit crater (Crater B). No significant changes were observed, but the observations suggest that the volcano is only dormant.
