  1. Very interesting. I am really enjoying your articles on out-of-the-way volcanos and aren’t subjects of usual writeup!


  2. There are those that attempt to describe the eastern curve of the Scotia / Sandwich Plates as an impact related structure. Yet it looks a lot like the eastern end of the Caribbean Plate which was shoved thru the opening between the North American and South American plates not unlike the motion of the Scotia / Sandwich.

    Great post, Granyia. Cheers –


  3. thank you Granyia. I was wondering at the arc form of the island chain making a comparison with the carribean arc.

    Meanwhile I found this resource on another very remote island nishinoshima, but it’s in Japanese.
