Wenman Island (also known as Wolf Island) and three nearby smaller islands are the eroded remnants of a shield volcano. The western part of the island and the small low western island may represent caldera-filling lava lake deposits. Remnant magnetism of two samples is reversed, indicating an age between 2.47 and 0.72 million years ago (Cox, 1983). A date of 1.6 +/- 0.07 million years was obtained from Wolf Island (Harpp and Geist, 2002).
