Bukit Bibinoi (Bibinoi Hill) is the largest and SE-most of a group of three andesitic Holocene stratovolcanoes located along a NW-SE line near the SE tip of Bacan Island, west of the southern tip of Halmahera (Yasin, 1980). The smaller Songsu and Lansa volcanoes straddle a narrow isthmus separating the SE-most peninsula of Bacan Island from the Sibela Mountains metamorphic complex. The Bibinoi volcano group lies along the same trend as the Amasing volcano group, which is located to the NW on the other side of the Sibela Mountains.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Bibinoi. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Bibinoi page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

The peninsula in the center of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top) forms the SE tip of Bacan Island, west of the southern tip of Halmahera. Bukit Bibinoi (Bibinoi Hill) is the largest and SE-most of a group of three andesitic Holocene stratovolcanoes located along a NW-SE line on the peninsula. The smaller Songsu and Lansa volcanoes straddle a narrow isthmus (left center) separating the peninsula from the Sibela Mountains metamorphic complex to the NW.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. 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.
