Background:

A second volcano in Shanshu Province of North Korea, known as Xianjindao, was reported to erupt two days after an eruption at Baitoushan (Changbaishan) volcano on the China/Korea border in 1597 (Shi et al., 1986).
Other eruptions were reported in 1724 and 1898 (the latter at Sanjiangdao), but little is known about the specific location and characteristics of this reported volcano and its unconfirmed eruptions.
