Newest Island on Earth, South Pacific Archipelago, 2015

Newest Island on Earth, South Pacific Archipelago, 2015

This unnamed land mass is the newest island on Earth and is already home to a small number of plants and animals. It emerged from the waters of the South Pacific in January 2015 when a volcano erupted on the nearby island of Tonga, forcing pulverised magma into the air above the ocean. The magma gradually built up on the ocean floor, penetrating the surface of the water to form the island.

Despite its youth, the unstable island is eroding at a rapid pace. Unless the volcano creates a fine ash that solidifies into rock, the island will probably wash away within years.
