Caption: Computer model of Ferdinandea being studied by Domenico Macaluso. Ferdinandea is a volcanic sea mount around 30 kilometres south of Sicily, Italy. Occasionally its eruptions eject enough material to raise it above sea level. This last happened in 1831, and its appearance led to a sovereignty dispute. It was first claimed by the British, who called it Graham Island, and also by the Sicilians (calling it Ferdinandea) and the French (who named it Giulia). The dispute was only resolved when the new island was eroded below sea level several months later. Macaluso led a team that placed a plaque on the submerged island in 2001, claiming it for Italy.
