The Volcano Adventure Guide: Excellent information and background for anyone wishing to visit active volcanoes safely and enjoyably. The book presents guidelines to visiting 42 different volcanoes around the world.
Moti (also spelled Motir) volcano forms a 5 km wide island surrounded by coral reefs north of Makian volcano. It is part of the N-S aligned chain of volcanoes off the W coast of Halmahera Island, Indonesia.
Moti has a truncated conical shape with a crater on the SSW side, and a lava flow is visible on the NW base. The volcano has no confirmed historic activity, although there are reports about a possible small eruption in 1774 or shortly before, although it is likely that this came from its more active neighbor Gamalana.
Intraplate volcanism: A third tectonic setting where volcanism occurs is believed to be the result of mantle plumes and not directly related to plate boundaries. So called hot spot volcanoes fall into this category.
