This volcano was discovered during an Australian research cruise in 2008. The overall edifice is 45 km in diameter, with a 5-km-diameter summit caldera.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Dugong. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Dugong page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Dugong.

The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Dugong.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
