Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Epi
Discolored water rises from the submarine Epi B vent in December 1958. The submarine vent is one of several located offshore of Epi Island. The island, located slightly west of the main New Hebrides volcanic arc, largely consists of two Quaternary volcanoes, Mount Allombei on the west and Pomare (Tavani Kutali) on the east. All historical eruptions have originated from small submarine basaltic and dacitic cones. Ephemeral islands were formed during eruptions in 1920 and 1953.
