"A cluster of basaltic volcanoes forms the Mundua Islands. The largest volcanic center is formed by the western tip of the 7-km-wide, linear Mundua Island and the arcuate Wingoru Island immediately to the west. The crater of this volcano is flooded by the sea through narrow channels on the northern and southern sides; remnants of crater walls form Wingoru island and are exposed at the western tip of Mundua island. Five small cones occupy the central and eastern sides of Mundua. Two of these have well-preserved craters and are of Holocene age (Johnson and Blake, 1972)."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
