An Island Suddenly Appeared on the Red Sea

An island suddenly appeared in the Red Sea west of Yemen. Four satellite owned by National Aviation and Space Agency (NASA) were deployed to observe this new island.
Volcanic activity in the Red Sea is causing the formation of a new island in the Zubair archipelago as lava is cooled by the surrounding seawater and solidifies. The underwater volcano responsible is located on the Red Sea Rift, where the African and Arabian tectonic plates are slowly pulling apart. (Picture from:
The presence of the new island is known from the reports of fishermen who saw the source of lava out of the sea to a height of 30 meters on December 19, 2011. NASA followed up this report by reviewing the location using remote sensing satellite named Terra and Aqua, respectively on 20 and December 22, 2011.

Ozone monitoring satellite named Aura also asked to measure the composition of the atmosphere in this area. The result, found elevated levels of sulfur dioxide. "The evidence indicates the occurrence of eruptions Satellite," said NASA.

On December 23, 2011, NASA discovered a new island location right in the eruption. The island is flanked by the eruption of Haycock Island in the north and Rugged Island in the South, each island lies approximately 1 km.

Is the Earth Observing-1 satellite is equipped with equipment called The Advanced Land Imager (ALI), which can capture with high resolution images, which capture new land in the Red Sea.

This finding may occur because the scene is part of the cracks at the base of the Red Sea which divides Africa and Arabia. Group of islands which now gets a new member is located in Zubair Archipelago, a group of small islands that extends from northwest to southeast. *** [NASA.COM | ANTON WILLIAM | KORAN TEMPO 3753]
