Details for: Kavachi
Passengers on small boats observe a submarine eruption from Kavachi volcano in July 1977. The isolated Kavachi, one of the most active submarine volcanoes in the SW Pacific, is located far from major aircraft and shipping lanes. Kavachi, sometimes referred to as Rejo te Kvachi ("Kavachi's oven"), has produced ephemeral islands up to 150-m long at least eight times since its first recorded eruption during 1939. The roughly conical volcano rises from water depths of 1.1-1.2 km on the north and greater depths to the south. Photo by W.G.
