Zengyu (also known as Cengyu) is submarine volcano north of Taiwan, 70 km NE of Pengchiahsu Island. The summit of the volcano is at a depth of 418 m. A steam eruption lasting 10 minutes was observed over an area of 30 sq m by a Japanese naval vessel on 18 April 1916 (Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World), but there were no reports of the ejection of solid material. Chen (1986) reported vapor emission and water discoloration that lasted until 1 June 1927, although the nature and duration of this activity is not certain.

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.
The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Zengyu.
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.
