Midway down the slopes of Ulawun, vegetation predominates, but volcanic rock coats the slopes near the summit, appearing in charcoal-brown streaks. A white plume blows from the summit toward the west. The plumes pale color suggests that, of the visible components in the plume, water vapor (rather than volcanic ash) predominates. Ulawun is a symmetrical stratovolcano and one of the most active in Papua New Guinea.
