Mere Lava :
Stratovolcano Mere Lava is a small, symmetrical basaltic island, 4 km wide in the southern Banks Islands, with a well-preserved top crater and a line of young east-west ash cones crossing the following Northeast flank a flaw. The lavas are tholeitic basaltic.
Several small cones of ash occupy the triangular summit crater of 1028 m of altitude, the Star Peak, high point of the island. The activity took place during the Holocene. The last eruption would go back to 1606.
A major earthquake hit the island in December 2002, causing major damage.
