[William G Melson; Eugene Jarosewich; Charles A Lundquist] -- "The eruption of Metis Shoal, Tonga, was evidentially similar to the frequent shallow submarine eruptions of the inner island arc of Tonga. The eruption began about 10 Decemberand Tonga.

Lateiki, previously known as Metis Shoal, is a submarine volcano midway between the islands of Kao and Late that has produced a series of ephemeral islands since the first confirmed activity in the midth century.

An island, perhaps not in eruption, was reported in and subsequently eroded away. During periods of inactivity following 20th-century eruptions, waves have Volcanic Eruption at Metis Shoal. Volcanic eruption at Metis Shoal, Tonga, [electronic resource]: description and petrology / William G.

Abstract. The Lau Basin comprises oceanic crust that separates the remnant Lau Ridge volcanic arc from the active Tofua arc. The basin is situated above mantle exhibiting strong seismic wave attenuation; it overlies the west dipping seismic zone of the Tonga Trench subduction system and is presently opening at rates as high as cm/yr.

Seaward rollback of the trench axis, Cited by: Sediments of the North Fiji Basin have been studied as part of a geological and geophysical survey of the central and western parts of the basin.
