The small steep-sided island of Manuk is the easternmost volcano in the arcuate Banda volcanic arc. The 282-m-high truncated andesitic cone rises 3000 m from the sea floor. No confirmed historical eruptions are known from this uninhabited island, although there was an uncertain report that a member of the 1874 Challenger Expedition saw smoke rising from the crater of Manuk. Highly altered fumarolic areas are located within the crater and on its western rim and were once the source of sulfur extraction by Chinese traders.
