This volcano started out erupting surtseyan, often erupts strombolian, has possibly erupted vulcanian, and has the potential to erupt peléan …but hopefully will not go all-out plinian any time soon.  No doubt it can be a troublemaker, but perhaps that is because it is an orphan. Its parent vanished from this Earth forty-seven years before it (in its present island form) appeared on this Earth.
