Gunung-Laworkawra

The 5 x 6 km Nila Island in the Banda Sea is comprised of a low-rimmed caldera whose rim is breached at sea level on the south and east and contains a 781-m-high youthful forested cone. Phreatic eruptions from the dominantly andesitic Nila, also known as Laworkawra, have occurred from summit vents and flank fissures in historical time. A 1932 eruption from a fissure that extended from the summit to the SE coast produced heavy ashfall that forced abandonment of Rumadai village (Smithsonian).
