The western of the twin Rumble II submarine volcanoes, located NW of Rumble II East, displays evidence of hydrothermal activity. Rumble II West contains a 2.5-3 km wide summit caldera about 200 m deep with a central cone and is about twice the volume of Rumble II East. Rumble II West rises 1800 m from the sea floor to within 1200 m of the sea surface and is the deepest of the Rumble group seamounts. Satellitic cones are found on the flanks of the volcano. Recent lava flows originating from near the caldera rim with little or no sediment cover blanket the western flanks.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Rumble II West. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Rumble II West page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Rumble II West.
|A bathymetric map was made during a 2009 voyage on the research vessel R/V Thompson of Rumble II West submarine volcano. Located NW of Rumble II East, Rumble II West, with a summit depth of 1200 m, is the deepest of the Rumble group of seamounts, but displays evidence of hydrothermal activity. It contains a 2.5-3 km wide summit caldera about 200 m deep with a central cone. Recent lava flows originating from near the caldera rim with little or no sediment cover blanket the western flanks.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
