The conical submarine Kawio Barat volcano sits just W of the Sangihe volcanic arc between Sulawesi Island in Indonesia and Mindanao Island in the Philippines. Many of the Sangihe islands contain active volcanoes that have erupted within the last 100 years (including Ruang, Karangetang, Banua Wuhu, and Awu). Satellite imagery showed submarine vents generating visible hydrothermal activity on the W side of the arc. A detailed survey was conducted in June 2010.
