Description

SuSu Knolls comprises three steep-sided conical volcanic peaks, standing on a N-NW-trending ridge in the eastern Manus basin, a complex zone of convergence between the major Indo-Australian and Pacific plates. The knolls consist of three porphyritic andesite-to-dacite domes, each 1.0 to 1.5 km in diameter, with crests ranging from 1,150 to 1,520 m below sea level. An intense hydrothermal plume, with peak transmission anomalies in excess of 40%, originates from SuSu Knolls, and associated...[Show more]
