Jiji Press, Dec. 26, 2013: Volcanic fumes some 100 meters high are being emitted by a crater on the island. Kenji Noami, a professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology’s Volcanic Fluid Research Center who took part in the observation, said the volcano is highly active, with fumes and lava continuing to increase in amount. The coast guard confirmed the existence of the new island on Nov. 20. Due to flowing lava, the island has grown to 150,000 square meters in size as of Tuesday from some 10,000 square meters on Nov. 21.

NHK, Dec. 20, 2013: Professor Kenji Nogami, Tokyo Institute of Technology: […] says more lava may have been drawn up than in other massive volcanic eruptions in the past in Japan. “The volcanic activity on the new island has been considerable. I assume that magma has been rising to the surface for a month now. We should pay close attention to the volcano and its eruptions.” >> Watch the broadcast here
