The Rabaul caldera, or Rabaul Volcano, is a large volcano on the tip of the Gazelle Peninsula in East New Britain, Papua New Guinea, and derives its name from the town of Rabaul inside the caldera. The caldera has many sub-vents, Tavurvur being the most well known for its devastating eruptions over Rabaul. The outer flanks of the highest peak, a 688-metre-high asymmetrical pyroclastic shield, are formed by thick pyroclastic flow deposits. There is no sign of a pyroclastic shield along the rim of the caldera, making the location likely underwater, on the caldera's floor.

dbo:abstract
  • Le Rabaul est un volcan de Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée situé sur l'île de Nouvelle-Bretagne et constitué d'une caldeira à demi-ouverte sur la mer. Cette caldeira forme un port naturel qui abrite Rabaul, ville abandonnée et détruite à la suite de l'éruption de 1994. Plusieurs bouches éruptives du volcan formant des cônes volcaniques, dont le Vulcan et le Tavurvur, se situent sur le pourtour de la caldeira. (fr)
  • The Rabaul caldera, or Rabaul Volcano, is a large volcano on the tip of the Gazelle Peninsula in East New Britain, Papua New Guinea, and derives its name from the town of Rabaul inside the caldera. The caldera has many sub-vents, Tavurvur being the most well known for its devastating eruptions over Rabaul. The outer flanks of the highest peak, a 688-metre-high asymmetrical pyroclastic shield, are formed by thick pyroclastic flow deposits. There is no sign of a pyroclastic shield along the rim of the caldera, making the location likely underwater, on the caldera's floor. Tavurvur, a stratovolcano and a sub-vent of the caldera, is the most visibly active, continuously throwing ash. In 1994 it, and nearby Vulcan, erupted and devastated Rabaul; however, due to planning for such a catastrophe, the townsfolk were prepared and only five people were killed. One of the deaths was caused by lightning, a feature of volcanic ash clouds. In 1937, Vulcan and Tavurvur erupted simultaneously, killing 507 people. This event led to the founding of the Rabaul Volcano Observatory which watches over the many active volcanoes on Papua New Guinea.One eruption over several days in March 2008 released a plume of ash and water vapor that drifted northwest over the Bismarck Sea.

  • De Rabaul is een grote vulkaan van het type pyroclastisch schild in East New Britain, Papoea-Nieuw-Guinea. De naam is afkomstig van het dorpje Rabaul, dat in de caldera ligt. Aan de oostzijde vormt de caldera een baai, die als haven gebruikt wordt. De caldera bestaat uit dikke afzettingen van een pyroclastische stroom en basaltische tot dacitische kegels, restanten van erupties die dateren van na het ontstaan van de caldera. Buiten de caldera bevinden zich nog twee actieve vulkanen, de Vulcan en de Tavurvur. (nl)
