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.

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.
