Bathymetry and petrologic evidence indicated the presence of an active dacitic submarine volcano SW of Rendova Island (Taylor, 1987). Kana Keoki Seamount, located along the Ghizo Ridge south of the convergent margin between the Indo-Australian and Pacific plates, rises to within about 700 m of the surface from a depth of 3700 m and is surrounded by a volcaniclastic apron.
