Background:

A small volcanic islet, 400 x 700 m wide, forms the summit of a large seamount. No volcanic vents have been identified, but rocks from the islet are Potassium-Argon dated at 1.94-1.31 million years ago (Clark and Dymond, 1977). Both Easter Island and Scala y Gomez are east of the East Pacific Rise.
