WOW! Totally Amazing!
They may not be the first people in history to witness such an event, but perhaps the only ones to capture it in photographs, as it happened.
First hand proof of how volcanic islands form. Photographs researchers would be interested in.
I am curious:
- Of the effect on the surrounding water temperatures.
- The effect on ocean life, scurrying off.
- What happens with / to the floating pumice? Does it eventually sink, or float around until it washes up on various shores.
I was going to check for recent seismic activity in that area, when I noticed the date of their Blog: Thursday, August 17, 2006.
