Gunung Api Wetar (Gunung Api = Fire Mountain) volcano forms a small round island in an isolated location in the Banda Sea, Indonesia. The volcano is a massive stratovolcano, rising 5 km from the sea floor; the island is just the uppermost 282 m above water. It is built from lava flows and has a central crater with an intra-crater cone. The slopes of Gunung Api show evidence of 3 large landslides, the largest of which forms en embayment on the NE coast.
The youngest lava flow descended the SW flank to the coast. Explosive eruptions in 1512 and 1699 are the only known historical activity of Gunung Api Wetar.
