Details for: Kueishantao
Vigorous submarine fumarolic activity discolors water over broad areas around Kueishantao Island (also known as Gueishan Island) off the eastern coast of Taiwan. The island is known as "Turtle Mountain Island" due to its profile as seen from some points on the coast of Taiwan. Historical accounts during the early years of King Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1775-1795 CE) noted that the Guieshan mountain split open with a blood-red lava flow.
