A subaqueous volcano is a volcano formed beneath water (similar to submarine volcanoes) and never builds above lake level.[1] They are commonly in the form of gently sloping tuff cones, although they can sometimes have an unvolcano-like form, such as White Horse Bluff in the Wells Gray-Clearwater volcanic field of east-central British Columbia, Canada.[2]
