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 on 22 Oct (NOAA)
MODIS hot spot at Langila (MODVOLC, Univ. Hawai'i)
A thermal hot spot and an SO2 plume are often visible on satellite data, indicating that the volcano is in eruption although the nature of its current activity is not known exactly.
The volcano, one of Papua New Guinea's most active, has often semi-persistent strombolian activity and sometimes lava flows.

Increased SO2 emissions are visible on satellite images today.
Samstag, Feb 09, 2013
Elevated SO2 emissions are visible on today's satellite data, indicating ongoing activity. Also Manam volcano
remains active and produced an increased SO2 plume.
Freitag, Dez 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.
Dienstag, 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.[mehr]
