Background:

Zealandia Bank consists of two pinnacles about 1 km apart rising from a submerged bank to near the sea surface between Guguan and Sarigan Islands. One pinnacle reaches >1 m above water at low tide. Andesitic rocks were dredged at the southern peak, which showed some evidence of coral growth. Freshly broken pahoehoe basaltic rocks were recovered on the western flank of Zealandia Bank. The age of the most recent eruptive activity at Zealandia Bank is not known, but a NOAA bathymetric survey in 2004 detected fumarolic activity.
