Bamus volcano erupciones

estratovolcán 2248 m / 7,375 ft
New Britain Island, Papua Nueva Guinea, -5.2°S / 151.23°E
Lista de erupción: 2006, 1886 ± 8 years, 1650 ± 50 years, 270 BC ± 50 years, 350 BC ± 75 years


2006 strong steaming (unlikely eruption)
Emissions of vapor "with a tint of gray color" (i.e. ash) was observed on 12 July 2006, most intensely between 1010 and 1110 hr (local time). The emissions were "forceful" and coming out of the crater. No other observations including thermal satellite monitoring confirm a new eruption of Bamus volcano took place. Most likely, the event was only a pulse of stronger steaming from one of the cracks in the lava dome.

1990 earthquake swarms
A seismic swarm occurred at Bamus volcano in 1990. Earthquakes started on 2 February when almost 100 earthquakes were recorded reaching up to a maximum of 5.8 magnitude.Between 10 and 15 Feb, about 1,400 events were recorded including 3 earthquakes of M 5.8-6.0.
A second peak of activity occurred between 25 and 28 Feb with 880 quakes including 2 of magnitude 5. A temporary seismograph network revealed that most quakes were in a 10-km-long NNE-trending zone on the S flanks of the volcano.
No significant changes were observed at the surface and no eruption followed the unrest.
