A bathymetric map view shows Rumble V submarine volcano at the southern end of the South Kermadec volcano group. A large plume of gas bubbles was acoustically detected rising from the summit in 1992. Rumble V, the southernmost of a group of seamounts on the southern Kermadec Ridge known as the Rumbles, rises more than 2,000 m to about 400 m below the sea surface.
