It is well known for its highly active volcanic activity that includes lava lake formation. With 677.7 square kilometres (261.7 sq mi) of surface area, it is the fifth largest island in the country. Several times per century, Ambrym volcano has destructive eruptions. The summit of the volcano contains a desert-like caldera which covers an area of 100 square kilometres (39 sq mi). With the neighbour island of Malakula and a few smaller islands, it forms Malampa Province. Its largest settlement is the village of Eas. The population of 8,000 inhabitants [2] lives mainly off coconut plantations.

The center of the island is dominated by a massive 1900-year-old 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) × 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) caldera that hosts multiple craters, and the rest of the caldera floor is ash plain, barren because of natural acid rain. Mt Benbow last erupted in 1913, causing the evacuation of the population to Mele, near Port Vila on Efate.

In the north is the North Ambrym language, in the southeast is the Southeast Ambrym language, in the south Dakaka language, in the west Lonwolwol language, and in the southwest Port-Vato language. These are all spoken by a few hundred to a few thousand speakers each. The kinship system used by natives of Ambrym can be modeled by a non-commutative group.[3] References ^ a b c d e f "Ambrym".
