The following references are the sources used for data regarding this volcano. References are linked directly to our volcano data file. 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. Additional discussion of data sources can be found under Volcano Data Criteria.

The research vessel "Moana Wave" of the University of Hawaii discovered a young submarine volcano SE of Kana Keoki seamount during a November 1985 to January 1986 cruise. The volcano, named Coleman Seamount, was constructed over the eastern end of the inactive Woodlark spreading center, south of the convergent boundary between the Indo-Australian and Pacific plates. Coleman Seamount is undissected and probably even more recently active than Kana Keoki Seamount.
