Active smoker chimneys precipitating iron, copper and zinc sulfides from 230 deg C fluid are found at the Black Forest hydrothermal area within the submarine caldera of East Diamante volcano. They are 9 m tall from the base to the top of the chimneys. East Diamante submarine volcano contains an elongated NE-SW-trending caldera with a pronounced rim on the NE side. A complex of lava domes constructed in the center of the caldera is the site of several hydrothermal areas.

The summit of East Diamante volcano is depicted from bathymetric data collected on the NOAA Submarine Ring of Fire 2002 and 2003 expeditions. The NE rim of the E Diamante caldera is prominent. A large post-caldera cone lies on the SW caldera rim, and a complex of lava domes was constructed in the center of the caldera. Several hydrothermal areas on the central lava-dome complex are labeled.
