The circular 8-km-wide island of Tolokiwa contains a summit crater breached to the NE that is largely filled by a later cone. The volcano is of Quaternary age (Johnson et al. 1972). The largest documented submarine debris-avalanche deposit mapped in the Bismarck Arc lies north of Tolokiwa (Silver et al., 2009).
