Williams and Warden (1964) report historical activity on Emae and some ashfall, which could have originated from another island (Eissen et al. 1991). Warden (1967) reported destruction of summit craters by erosion and deep dissection of surficial deposits, and suggests the Emae volcanoes may have become extinct in the Pliocene or early Pleistocene. Crawford et al. (1988) place Emae on the rim of a large caldera that extends south to Mataso Island. Macfarlane et al. (1988) place two smaller uncertain calderas at this location. Eissen et al. (1991) did not find evidence for a caldera at this location.
