Details for: Simbo
The saltwater Lake Ove in the foreground is seen from the rim of Ngusunu crater with the W coast of Simbo Island in the background. Simbo is a small island in the western Solomon Islands with three truncated andesitic volcanic centers. Indigenous people’s accounts told of the explosive enlargement of the Ngusunu explosion crater along the SW coast of the island one to two generations prior to 1955 and probably after 1882. Press reports mentioned an eruption at Simbo in the early 1900s. Photo by Chris Lyne, 2005.
