Background:

The small 4-km-wide symmetrical island of basaltic Mera Lava in the southern Banks Islands contains a well-preserved summit crater and an east-west line of young cinder cones cutting across the NE flank. Several small cinder cones occupy the triangular summit crater of 1028-m-high Star Peak, the high point of the island. The low degree of dissection indicates that Mera Lava was in eruption during the Holocene (Mallick and Ash, 1975). Mere Lava was reported to have been smoking when it was first seen by the explorer Queiros in 1606.
