Kurose Hole, between Mikura and Hachijo-jima islands, is a nearly circular 5-7 km wide submarine caldera with a 600-760 m deep caldera floor. A flat-topped somma rim rises to within 107 m of the sea surface. Large amounts of dacitic pumice were recovered from dredges along the inner caldera wall. Kurose caldera has a youthful morphology, but the age of its most recent eruption is not known.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Kurose Hole. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Kurose Hole 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 Kurose Hole.
The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Kurose Hole.
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.
