Details for: Paluweh
An unvegetated lava dome is visible at the summit of Paluweh volcano, also known as Rokatenda. The complex stratovolcano forms an 8-km-wide island located north of the volcanic arc that cuts across Flores Island. The summit region contains overlapping craters and lava domes; several flank vents occur along a NW-trending fissure. The largest historical eruption of Paluweh occurred in 1928.
