Manam (Papua New Guinea): Mild eruptive activity likely continues at the volcano. Satellite images show a thermal hot spot at the summit crater and occasionally, during clear weather, strong emissions of sulfur dioxide gas.
Due to the lack of current field observations, no detailed information about the nature of the activity (if any) is currently available. The most likely situation is that there are mild strombolian eruptions and/or a growing lava dome at the summit crater. Manam is one of the region's most active volcano.
