Caption

Nishinoshima volcanic eruption. Satellite image of ash-seeded clouds (white) and the ash plume from the volcanic eruption expanding the Pacific island of Nishinoshima (bottom), south-east of Japan. North is at top. 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 of November 2013 created a new island to the south-east. By 30 March 2014 the islands had merged and grown to around a kilometre across (the original island was around 500 metres across). Image data obtained on 30 March 2014 by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on the Landsat 8 satellite.
