There are no Holocene eruptions known for Lolo. If this volcano has had large eruptions prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The following references are the sources used for data regarding this volcano. References are linked directly to our volcano data file. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title. Additional discussion of data sources can be found under Volcano Data Criteria.

Lolo is a small, nearly symmetrical 805-m-high andesitic stratovolcano located north of Pago volcano along the north coast of New Britain near Cape Hoskins. It is of very late Pleistocene or Holocene age and overlaps the older Kapberg volcano to the west (Blake and McDougall, 1973). Lava flows are prominent on its flanks, and a well-preserved crater 250-m wide and 60-m deep truncates the summit of the stratovolcano.
