Ahyi submarine volcano is seen in a bathymetric view looking from the NE with two times vertical exaggeration. It rises to within about 150 m of the sea surface about 18 km SE of the island of Farallon de Pajaros (Uracas) in the northern Marianas. Water discoloration has been observed over the volcano and an explosive eruption was seismically detected in April 2001.
