Aoba, Ambae Island, Vanuatu
Location: 15.4S, 167.8E
Elevation: 4,907 feet (1,496 m)

Aoba is a shield volcano with a large shallow crater, called Manaro, which contains one or more lakes. Manaro contains gas vents that can be heard some distance away, hot springs, and solfataras. Most of Aoba is made of tephra but a few thin basaltic lava flows have been noted. In 1995, there was a strong gas discharge event with large amplitude tremor at Aoba. The Michigan Tech Volcanoes homepage describes the volcanic unrest at Aoba in 1995.

Hello Volcano Fans!


As you might have noticed we are in the process of changing to a new style of website.   This is a significant upgrade over all previous versions of VW and will allow this website to carry on for some time into the future without any further changes.   We understand and apologize that things have been changing so often here, but each step has been required for us to keep the website going.   This change will guarantee that VW is always up to date!


Most of the older content is still here!! 


I suggest using the search box on the homepage first.
