Background:

Pengchiahsu is one of five small Pleistocene volcanic islands NE of Taiwan. The summit of andesitic Pengchiahsu island (also known as Agincourt) reaches only 129 m above sea level. The age of volcanism is considered to be Pleistocene, but Pengchiahsu displays fumarolic activity (Volcanological Society of Japan, 1971).
