Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Wright
Twin submarine volcanoes, known informally as Volcano W, were discovered during a New Zealand-American mapping expedition in 2004. This view taken at the SE volcano from a submersible vehicle during a 2005 expedition shows toothpaste-like lava at Volcano W that oozed from this tube before it solidified in place. The SE volcano rises to within about 900 m of the sea surface and contains a cone in its summit caldera.
