A "smoke" column rising several thousand meters from the sea, steaming turbulent water, water discoloration, and a probable raft of floating pumice were seen from the air at a point 90 km NE of Necker Island on August 20, 1953. Despite a water depth at this point of approximately 4 km, Macdonald (1959) considered there to be little doubt that a submarine eruption, the westernmost historical volcanic eruption in the Hawaiian lsland chain, had occurred.

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.
