Background

Langila volcano, whose activity record goes back to the 19th century only, is one of the most active volcanoes of New Britain, Papua New Guinea. Langila's frequent activity consists typically of mild-to-moderate explosive eruptions, that are sometimes accompanied by lava flows.


The volcano consists of four small overlapping cones on the lower eastern flank of the extinct Talawe volcano,- the highest volcano in NW New Britain. The rectangular, 2.5-km-long crater of Talawe has a large gap to the SE; the younger Langila volcano formed NE of Talawe's breached crater.


Extensive lava flows have reached the sea from the N and NE flanks of the volcano. Since observations have begun, 3 summit craters have been active. The youngest and smallest of these, with a diameter of 150 m, was formed in 1960.

Langila volcano continues to erupt, producing ash fall over near-by communities, where about 10,000 people live. Ashfall is causing respiratory problems and has damaged small plantations, food and water supply. Authorities have started to evacuate some people in the most affected villages and to bring in temporary shelter, water and food suplies.

Between 28 April and 4 May 2005, almost continuous emissions of thick white to gray ash-clouds were observed rising about 700-800 m above the summit crater.
Glow was visible during nights; strombolian activity with projections of incandescent lava became frequent in early May.
