|Ocean around Japan warming fast|
Sea surface temperatures around central, western and southern Japan have climbed by 0.7 to 1.6 degrees Celsius in the last century, far higher than the world average of 0.5C, a survey conducted by the agency showed.
The findings were based on data collected by research and commercial vessels that started in the late 19th century
The ocean warming is "partly because of global warming," the Agency said.
Global warming? Considering that there are so many underwater
earthquakes in the Japan area, wouldn’t underwater volcanoes make a
lot more sense as a source for the warming?
As I said in my article about the Island Kavachi :
"Worldwide, as many as 30,000 islands have been formed by underwater volcanoes, say researchers. The major islands in Hawaii, for example, were built around the active volcanoes at their centers. Hawaii's Big Island was formed by five large volcanoes, including Mauna Loa, the largest active volcano on Earth.
"Other islands birthed by undersea volcanic eruptions include the islands of Japan, the West Indies islands in the Caribbean, the Azores in the Atlantic, and hundreds of islands in the Pacific."
And just last month, an underwater volcano erupted around Minami Iwojima Island in the Pacific.
