A VERY NEW ISLAND HAS BEEN CREATED IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN

V T LONDHE 15–02–2015

The expert scientists are telling that a very new island has been created in the Pacific Ocean due the explosion of an earthquake within the Pacific Ocean. This island is 1.30 km long and 800m wide. This is located nearly 48 km away from the Nukulhua the Capital of Tonga. The scientists further say that this will get submerged in the ocean within a few days.

In fact, the forming of the new island is the first time the phenomenon has happened in almost 30 years.
Video footage showed smoke billowing from part of the ocean around the Ogasawara island chain on Wednesday afternoon.
The Japanese coastguard later confirmed it was coming from the new islet.
This chain is made up of over 30 subtropical and tropical islands.
The islet is made up of volcanic lava and rocks forced from the ocean floor. Volcanologists claim the temperature of the rocks could be as high as 1,000°C.
The birth of an island: Undersea volcanic eruption adds to Japan

The coastguard has warned sailors to use caution in the area and avoid traveling near it until the heat from the eruption cools off.
‘Smoke is still rising from the volcanic island, and we issued a navigation warning to say that this island has emerged with ash falling in the area,’ said a spokesman for the maritime agency.
He added that the islet may not last long due to erosion, but if enough volcanic lava surfaces and solidifies it could create a new marker on the map.
Similar eruptions in the early 1970s and 80s created tiny islets in Japan’s territory that have since disappeared.
The new islet rose into the ocean near the Bonin Islands, also known as the Ogasawara chain.

‘If this becomes a solid island, our country’s territorial waters will expand,’ Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said.
In September a similar new island appeared off the coast of Pakistan.
It was forced to the surface following an earthquake and was made up a mound of mud and rock 70ft high and 295ft wide.
The phenomenon on the coastline near the port of Gwadar caused astonishment when it emerged from the Arabian Sea but, like the new islet in Japan, experts said it was unlikely to last long.
In November this year, a powerful volcanic eruption in the Pacific Ocean created a new island off the coast of Japan, pictured. The mass of rock was forced from the sea following an eruption in a region dubbed Ring of Fire — a hub of seismic activity situated 620 miles south of Tokyo
