Details for: Curtis Island
Flat-topped 137-m-high Curtis Island, seen here from the north, is, along with nearby Cheeseman Island, the uplifted portion of a submarine volcano astride the Kermadec Ridge. The small Pleistocene islands consist mostly of andesitic pyroclastic-flow deposits. Reports of possible historical eruptions probably represent increased thermal activity from a shallow crater near sea level. Geologic studies have documented a remarkable uplift of 18 m of Curtis Island during the past 200 years. Photo by Owen Calder, 2004
