Caption: Nishinoshima volcanic eruption, 2013-14. Montage of three satellite images (North at top) showing the Pacific volcanic island of Nishinoshima, south-east of Japan, growing in the period 2013 to 2014. Prior to eruptions in 1973-74, this island was the peak of an underwater volcano that had not erupted for over 10,000 years. The eruption that started in November 2013 created a new island to the south-east, shown at left (8 December 2013). At centre (24 December 2013) the two islands are beginning to merge. By 30 March 2014 (right) the islands have fully merged and grown to around a kilometre across (the original island was around 500 metres across).

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
