Karai (Sulu Range) volcano eruptions

New Britain Island, Papua New Guinea, -5.5°S / 150.94°E
Eruption list: none in recent times
(2006: steam emissions caused by probably shallow intrusion)


2006 activity - phreatic explosions and steam emissions accompanied by intense seismicity
Eruptions at Karai volcano in Papua New Guinea were reported in July 2006. The eruption was said to have taken place 2 km SW of Mount Karai between Ubia and Ululu volcanoes. This would have been the first historical activity recorded at the volcano. However, field investigations revealed that no magma reached the surface, and that the explosions were forceful steam emissions or weak phreatic explosions.
