Best, J.G., 1953. Preliminary report on investigation volcanic activity, Umboi Island, New Guinea. Record  1953/038. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

On the 9th January, 1953, the writer received a letter from the Rev. Knoller of the Lutheran Mission, Umboi, describing some recently discovered thermal areas. Permission was requested and obtained from the Government Secretary, Port Moresby, to proceed to Umboi and investigate these areas. During the investigations all six thermal areas known to the inhabitants, both European and Native, were visited. These six areas are disposed about Mt. Talo, a well defined volcanic cone containing two crater lakes and located somewhat northwest of the centre of the island. These thermal areas have been numbered i to vi in the order in which they were visited.
