The topographic high (red) at the top of this bathymetric image is Kita-Fukutokutai volcano. This submarine volcano lies between Iwojima and Minami-Ioto islands, NW of Fukutoku-Oka-no-Ba submarine volcano (center; NE of Minami-Ioto). Water discoloration was reported several times beginning in 1937 at Kita-Fukutokutai volcano. In 1988 a fishing boat reported an eruption column about 100 m high, although the report was not confirmed at the time.
