Volcanic rocks forming much of the northern part of Tanna island originated from the Pleistocene East Tanna Volcano, now largely collapsed below sea level on the eastern side of the island (Robin et al. 1993). Lavas and pyroclastics along the east coast of the island have a westward dip. The Green Hill volcanics at the northern end of the island (Carney and Macfarlane 1979) can be considered a subordinate center to the East Tanna Volcano.
