Abstract

Papua New Guinea lies in a very active volcanic region of the world, where eruptions and other volcanic hazards can have disastrous results. To monitor the volcanoes, the Rabaul Volcanological Observatory (RVO) was established in 1940. Geoscience Australia has provided the RVO with technical aid in many forms, including (since 2010) advice and assistance in the creation of an information management system (IMS). The purpose, scope and design features of this system are described.
