Description

The Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World described a submarine volcano with two summits 7 km apart along a trending ridge in the western part of the Banda Sea. Eruptions of somewhat uncertain authenticity were reported to have occurred sometime before 1893, and in 1925 and 1927. The existence of a submarine volcano at this location was considered questionable by Jezek.
