Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Lateiki
Waves break over Metis Shoal on 19 February 1968, more than a month after the end of a submarine eruption that began in December 1967 and produced an ephemeral island. Metis Shoal has produced a series of small islands during eruptions observed since the mid-19th century. An eruption in 1995 produced a lava dome that built up to 43 m above sea level.
