Share on Pinterest

Passengers onboard a boat in Papua New Guinea witness a volcanic eruption on Mount Tavurvur on 29 August 2014. Tavurvur is an active stratovolcano that lies near Rabaul, on the island of New Britain, in Papua New Guinea. It is a sub-vent of the Rabaul caldera and lies on the eastern rim of the larger feature.

An eruption of the volcano largely destroyed the nearby town of Rabaul in 1994. Mount Tavurvur is the most active volcano in Rabaul caldera. [source]
