Lolo (also known as Auwers) volcano is a small andesitic stratovolcano 13 km north of Pago volcano in New Britain.
It has a nearly symmetrical shape with steep 35 deg upper slopes above 300 m elevation, and lower more gently inclined 20 deg slopes at its base between 150 and 250 m elevation. The diameter at its base if about 4 km.
Lolo has a shallow well preserved summit crater 250 m long, 175 m wide, and 60 m deep. Its slopes are cut by a regular pattern of radial erosion gullies up to 30 m deep and parts of the upper slopes are unvegetated.
Well-preserved lava flows from Lolo can be seen from the air, but their age is unknown.
Intraplate volcanism: A third tectonic setting where volcanism occurs is believed to be the result of mantle plumes and not directly related to plate boundaries. So called hot spot volcanoes fall into this category.
