Baby Volcanic Island Swallows Its Older Neighbor, New Japanese Island Forming In Pacific Ocean (Video)

Earthquakes, Environment

 

 

(N.Morgan) Earthquakes in diverse places, fire coming from the sky, islands swallowing other islands.. Now, an interesting event that has occurred in the Ring Of Fire region, in a new twist in Japan, a smaller  volcanic island, called Niijima has swallowed Nishino-shima island.

 

 

 

Now a satellite image taken March 30, 2014, by the Operational Land Imager on Landsat 8 shows that Niijima has actually overtaken Nishino-shima. Together, the conjoined islands measure about 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) across, officials with NASA’s Earth Observatory said. The landmass has also tripled in height since December, now rising more than 196 feet (60 m) above sea level.

The smashed-together islands mark the top of a giant submarine volcano that had not erupted since a major outpouring in 1973 to 1974, according to the Japanese Coast Guard. Lava flows are now most active in the southern portion of the new landmass, and plumes of ash continue to rise, with tiny particles seeding a stream of white cloud puffs overhead.

 

“The intermittent, pulsing shape of the cloud stream might be a reflection of the volcanic eruption itself,” officials with NASA’s Earth Observatory wrote. “Strombolian explosions are essentially bubbles of lava and gas rising from Earth’s interior in pulses. Underwater, sediment appears to be stirred up in a green plume that stretches eastward from the island.”
