Background

The volcano formed above the eastern end of the now inactive Woodlark spreading center, located south of the convergent boundary between the Indo-Australian and Pacific plates. Although it is close to being subducted, Coleman Seamount is still undissected and has probably erupted more recently than its neighbor Kana Keoki Seamount.
