As i noted a few days ago, I had received information that the reported  
geysers of Savo island, in the Solomon Islands, are in fact nothing more than  
drowned fumaroles. That information has now been confirmed by a Solomon  
volcanologist, Dr. T. Toba.
Dr. Toba, however, states that the geysers reported in the large Paraso Hot  
Springs field on Vella Lavella Island do indeed exist. I am seeking additional 
 contacts about that area.
Lastly, Dr. Toba says that his understanding is that the geysers reported  on 
Gaua island and on Vanua lava Islands in Vanuatu are again true geysers. In  
this case he provided an e-mail for a Mr. Douglas in the (Vanuatu) Dept. of  
Geology, Mines and Water. So, we'll see.
