Manam Volcano, Papua New Guinea The island of Manam, in the Bismarck Sea off the northeastern coast of Papua New Guinea, is one of the most active volcanoes in the South Pacific. In May 2022, the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre issued several aviation alerts for ash plumes rising from Manam. On May 17–19, ash plumes reached altitudes up to 2.4 kilometers (1.5 miles) above sea level and drifted northwest and west. On May 22, 2022, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 observed an infrared signature, indicating heat in Manam’s southern summit crater. The southern crater has historically been the more active of the two summit craters, according to the Smithsonian Global Volcanism Program. Manam is a stratovolcano, a type known for explosive eruptions that create steep-sided cones. Frequent mild-to-moderate explosive eruptions have been recorded here since 1616. They most often produces ash plumes, but occasional larger eruptions have produced lava and pyroclastic flows that reached the coast. An October 2021 eruption emitted an incandescent plume and ejected an ash cloud to a height of 15.2 kilometers (9.4 miles). Intermittent ash plume eruptions continued in late 2021 and into 2022. In early March 2022, researchers from the Rabaul Volcanological Observatory reported a small pyroclastic flow descending Manam’s flank. The eruption was accompanied by ash emissions and “characterized by loud roaring and rumbling heard on the mainland.” Four valleys radiate from the classic conical peak of this stratovolcano, which rises to an elevation of 1,800 meters (5,900 feet) above sea level. Three of the valleys, locally called avalanche valleys, are visible in the image. The valleys have channeled many of the previous lava and pyroclastic flows, some of which enter the sea. However, some eruptions have jumped out of the valleys and reached populated areas on the lower flanks of the volcano. Most of Manam’s 9,000 residents were evacuated during a major eruption in 2004, but many people have since returned. A 2005 eruption sent a large cloud of sulfur dioxide drifting west over the island of New Guinea. Papua New Guinea is home to 14 active and 22 dormant volcanoes that present a risk to an estimated 250,000 people. Of those, Manam is one of six that scientists have categorized as high-risk. The island has also been identified as one of several volcanoes where an eruption or flank collapse could possibly produce a tsunami. The southwest Pacific—where the Pacific and Australian plates are converging—is a very active and complex tectonic zone. The presence of many microplates means many different types of tectonic boundaries occur in close proximity. Plates are colliding, diverging, or grinding past one another here. Manam is part of the Bismarck volcanic island arc. These chains of volcanic islands form over subduction zones. As one plate dives beneath another, magma rises to the surface and punches through the overlying plate to form a volcano.

Linguistics problems #15
The solution to yesterday’s problem is:
1. Jón Oddson Bergmann
2. Steinunn
3. Three
4. Three
5. Stefan Gunnarsson Gunnarssonar
6. Guðmundur (Evasson /Christiansson)(Emilsonnar /Kristínsonnar/Viktorssonar) (Kvaran)
7. Hrafnildur Björnsdóttir (Annassonar)
If anyone wants the detailed explanation, send me a direct message and I will give it to you.
This is the fifteenth linguistics problem, known as Manam.
Manam Pile (“Manam Talk”) is a Malayo-Polynesian language spoken on Manam Island off the coast of Papua New Guinea. Manam is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, and during violent eruptions the population must be evacuated to the mainland.

Below, a Manam islander describes the relative locations of the houses above.
Onkau pera kana auta ieno, Kulu pera kana ilau ieno.
Mombwa pera kana ata ieno, Kulu pera kana awa ieno.
Tola pera kana auta ieno, Sala pera kana ilau ieno.
Sulung pera kana awa ieno, Tola pera kana ata ieno.
Sala pera kana awa ieno, Mombwa pera kana ata ieno.
Pita pera kana ilau ieno, Sulung pera kana auta ieno.
Sala pera kana awa ilau ieno, Onkau pera kana ata auta ieno.
Butokang pera kana awa auta ieno, Pita pera kana ata ilau ieno.
1. Onkau’s, Mombwa’s, and Kulu’s houses have already been located on the map above. Who lives in the other five houses?
2. Arongo is building his new house in the location marked with an X. In three Manam Pile sentences like the ones above, describe the location of Arongo’s house in relation to the three closest houses. 
Either reblog the post with the answer (using #lingproblems) or write it in a comment. Only answers posted before tomorrow’s post will be counted for the prizes, but you can try to solve it even if the deadline has passed.
Remember that there is no need to know anything about Manam Pile or linguistics to solve it, you just need logic and patience.
Good luck!

apparently there was a strong earthquake near New Guinea but I couldn’t manage to get any info about the magnitude and stuff
EDIT: the earthquake was probably caused by a volcanic eruption of Manam volcano
