2014: The Year in Volcanic Activity - In Focus - The Atlantic    Nine months after a new island broke through the surface of the western Pacific Ocean, the volcanic eruption at Nishino-shima continues. The tiny new volcanic island ("Niijima" in Japanese) merged into Nishino-shima last winter and continued to grow. Steady flows of lava are enlarging the merged island, which is now 1.39 square kilometers (0.54 square miles).

Far below the earth’s surface, gigantic plates of the earth’s crust are constantly moving. Where these plates meet, one piece may rub against another, causing an earthquake. But if one plate pushes itself under another, it will melt and become liquid rock or magma. The super hot liquid rock creates gas and steam, building pressure until it blasts through weak places in the earth’s surface. This is how a volcano erupt. Ryan
