Pengchiahsu is one of five small Pleistocene volcanic islands NE of Taiwan. The summit of andesitic Pengchiahsu island (also known as Agincourt) reaches only 129 m above sea level. The age of volcanism is considered to be Pleistocene, but Pengchiahsu displays fumarolic activity (Volcanological Society of Japan, 1971).

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