WorldBlue  In short

Africa’s most active volcano, 3,058 m high. This volcano has erupted 30 times since 1880. As a result, it produces the major part of sulfur dioxide pollution in the world. Frequent eruptions of the volcano have created lava fields.

An intense eruption took place also in 2010 and damaged the virgin rainforest. The volcano contains an intermittent lava lake which seems to become more stable and permanent.
