The Emperor Range in northern Bougainville Island is a group of strongly eroded volcanic centers of Pleistocene age. A poorly preserved caldera 5-6 km in diameter is filled by a lava dome complex. The Kunua complex immediately to the west contains a 3.5 x 4.5 km caldera that produced ignimbrites dated about 0.2 million years ago that reached the western coast.
