The Bola volcano rises above Stetin Bay in New Britain.
|Elevation||1,155 m (3,789 ft) |
The Bola volcano, also known as Wangore, is an andesitic stratovolcano, located south-west of the Dakataua caldera. It is 1,155 metres (3,789 ft) tall and has a 400 m (1,310 ft) wide summit crater.
The most recent lava flow was erupted from the summit crater and flowed to the west. This viscous flow is at least 50 m thick, thus leaving an irregularity in the profile of the volcano. The unforested summit crater and weak fumarolic activity suggests that the most recent eruption may have been only a few hundred years ago.
