Nishino-Shima volcano (Izu Islands, Japan): new island continues to grow and builds lava plateau
Tuesday Dec 03, 2013 14:36 PM | BY: T
The new island continues to erupt and grow, increasing its chances of long-time survival by the day. The active vent on the islet continues to be in strombolian eruption and has by now built a new cone that is higher than the main island itself (which is 38 m).
Lava flows have significantly enlarged the island to the SE where a plateau is being built. During the 10 days, it has more than doubled its surface.
