Hiri, a small 3-km-wide forested island immediately north of Ternate Island, is the northernmost of a chain of volcanic islands off the western coast of Halmahera. The conical volcano rises to 630 m, but is dominated by its larger and higher neighbor to the south, historically active 1716-m-high Ternate volcano. Hiri has received less attention than Ternate, but Apandi and Sudana (1980) mapped Hiri as Holocene in age.
