The Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World described a submarine volcano named Emperor of China in the western part of the Banda Sea with reported eruptions of somewhat uncertain authenticity sometime before 1893 and in 1927. The existence of an active submarine volcano at this location, which has a minimum depth of 2850 m, was considered questionable by Jezek (1978, pers. comm.).
