After an underwater volcano erupts, a new island appears in the Pacific Ocean
Weird phenomenon has been reported before US space agency, NASA, In the waters of the Pacific Ocean, specifically in Tongaa country belonging to the continent of Oceania, where the eruption of an underwater volcano led to the emergence of a new island in the center of the territorial system of the aforementioned state.
According to the report of the ContainerThis island originated in an area located to the southwest of the Pacific Ocean, in an area representing a An abundant system of marine volcanoesOne began activity on September 10, causing, in addition to expelling lava, a wave of steam and ash that is challenging the flight systems passing through the area.
According to the American space entity, and more specifically in its ground-based observatory, a few hours after the start of the sea volcano’s eruption, it began A new area appearswhich emerged from the sea, and NASA observers were able to document its growth through satellite capture.
According to a NASA report, although images of the entity initially reported the appearance of a an island with an area of \u200b\u200babout 4000 square meters; According to data reported on September 14, the size of this new “children’s” island began to increase, reaching about 24000 square metersAccording to the report delivered on September 20, which is equivalent to an area of about 2.4 hectares.
With regard to the location of this new concentration of land, now attributed to the territory of Central Tonga, it is located in the so-called sea mountain reef home.
Although it is a new area, experts warned that due to the characteristics of the emergence of this island, it is expected to be “short-lived”, that is, it will disappear again over time, warning, according to previous reports, that the emergence of these areas could Gives carrots lifesome years‘, without excluding the possibility of reaching Earth’s focus contracts.
Although the area reached 2.4 hectares, this area may have grown by a few more square meters, if one takes into account that, at least until last September 23, the submarine volcano was still active, which could mean the expulsion of More volcanic materials that would contribute to the swell of the surface of the territory.
Although the situation stems from an eruption of a volcano, which may be active, local authorities have determined that there is a ‘low’ level of risk for people residing on some nearby islands, such as for Vava ‘u and Ha’ apai, groups of The islands are located in the center of the Tonga archipelago.
In this sense, the indicated risks to aviation bodies passing through this place will also be low, due to the reduction of ash emissions.
Despite the above, the authorities have made a series of recommendations to avoid any stalemate with navigation, and the conditions themselves derive from volcano activity.
In this context, the authorities have asked boat riders who are cruising around the place to do so at a distance of no less than 4 kilometers From the so-called Home Reef, warning that the action will be temporary, and they hope to enable the now limited space soon, adding that the action will work until ‘further notice’.
Regarding the emergence of this new island, the authorities have not specified whether it could eventually become habitable, however, there would be a risk derived from the nature of the concentration of the land, what these lands have historically indicated in terms of durability, and at risk of disappearance.
