Wilson seamounts Wilson seamounts off the coast of British Columbia
In recognition of Wilson's contributions to the advancement of geology and geophysics, submarine volcanoes off the coast British Columbia, were named in his honour.
The Tuzo Wilson Seamounts, also called J. Tuzo Wilson Knolls and Tuzo Wilson Knolls, are two young active submarine volcanoes off the coast of British Columbia, Canada, located 200 km northwest of Vancouver Island and south of the Queen Charlotte Islands. The two seamounts are members of the Kodiak-Bowie Seamount chain, rising 500 m to 700 m above the mean level of the northeastern Pacific Ocean and is a seismically active site southwest of the southern end of the Queen Charlotte Fault. They are named after Canadian geologist John Tuzo Wilson.
