The small steep-sided island of Manuk is the easternmost volcano in the arcuate Banda volcanic arc. The 282-m-high truncated andesitic cone rises 3000 m from the sea floor. No confirmed historical eruptions are known from this uninhabited island, although there was an uncertain report that a member of the 1874 Challenger Expedition saw smoke rising from the crater of Manuk. Highly altered fumarolic areas are located within the crater and on its western rim and were once the source of sulfur extraction by Chinese traders.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Manuk. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Manuk page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.
The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Manuk.
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.
