The research vessel "Moana Wave" of the University of Hawaii discovered a young submarine volcano SE of Kana Keoki seamount during a November 1985 to January 1986 cruise. The volcano, named Coleman Seamount, was constructed over the eastern end of the inactive Woodlark spreading center, south of the convergent boundary between the Indo-Australian and Pacific plates. Coleman Seamount is undissected and probably even more recently active than Kana Keoki Seamount.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Coleman Seamount. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Coleman Seamount 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 Coleman Seamount.

The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Coleman Seamount.

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.
