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.

SO2 plume from Langila and Manam (NOAA)
Elevated SO2 emissions are visible on today's satellite data, indicating ongoing activity. Also Manam volcano
remains active and produced an increased SO2 plume.
Friday, Dec 07, 2012
Eruptive activity at Langila continues at least sporadically. An explosive event on 6 Dec produced an ash plume detected at 7000 ft (2.1 km) altitude extending 60 nm to the NW. Satellite images showed a sulfur dioxide plume as well.
Tuesday, Sep 25, 2012
An SO2 plume is visible today from Langila suggesting that the volcano has some activity.

Eruptions continue at Langila volcano from its Crater 2 with continuous emissions of gray ash plumes rising to altitudes of ca. 2-3.5 km and drifting predominantly to the W and NW.
Friday, Apr 07, 2006
Weak vulcanian activity continues at Langila volcano's Crater 2. Eruptive activity was characterized by emissions of diffuse pale gray ash between 30 January and 7 February. Activity changed to subcontinuous forceful emissions of dark gray ash on 1, 2, 6, 7, and 9 March. The resultant plumes did not rise higher than 2 km above the summit crater (or 10,900 ft a.s.l.) before drifting WSW of the volcano. Weak-to-bright glow and weak projections of incandescent lava fragments were visible on 22, 23, and 28 February, and on 1, 2, and 6 March. There was no activity at Crater 3.
Friday, Jun 24, 2005
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.
