Summary of Holocene eruption dates and Volcanic Explosivity Indices (VEI).
|Start Date||Stop Date||Eruption Certainty||VEI||Evidence||Activity Area or Unit|
|0400 BCE (?)||Unknown||Confirmed||Radiocarbon (corrected)||Hino-take|
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.
|Hukue-zima | Fukue-jima|
|Feature Name||Feature Type||Elevation||Latitude||Longitude|
|Cone||315 m||32° 39' 37" N||128° 51' 55" E|
|Cone||315 m||32° 39' 24" N||128° 50' 56" E|
|Sparsely vegetated On-dake cinder cone rises to the NW above Shiozura Bay. The 317-m-high cinder cone is the highest of a group of small basaltic shield volcanoes and cinder cones on the eastern side of Fukue Island, off the western coast of Kyushu. Activity at the Fukue volcano group began about 900,000 years ago, and the latest activity took place about 2000-3000 years ago.

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.

|WOVOdat||WOVOdat is a database of volcanic unrest; instrumentally and visually recorded changes in seismicity, ground deformation, gas emission, and other parameters from their normal baselines. It is sponsored by the World Organization of Volcano Observatories (WOVO) and presently hosted at the Earth Observatory of Singapore.|
|EarthChem||EarthChem develops and maintains databases, software, and services that support the preservation, discovery, access and analysis of geochemical data, and facilitate their integration with the broad array of other available earth science parameters. EarthChem is operated by a joint team of disciplinary scientists, data scientists, data managers and information technology developers who are part of the NSF-funded data facility Integrated Earth Data Applications (IEDA). IEDA is a collaborative effort of EarthChem and the Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS).|
