NASA captures the eruption of an underwater volcano that is the strange home of two species of sharks

(CNN) — NASA’s Earth Observatory released satellite images of an erupting underwater volcano. The image, taken on May 14 by Operational Land Imager 2 on the Landsat 9 satellite, shows a discolored column of water that the underwater volcano was emitting. The satellite is designed to capture high-resolution photos of our planet. The Kavachi volcano in the Solomon Islands is one of the most active underwater volcanoes in the Pacific, NASA explained. It is located about 24 kilometers south of an island called Vangunu. Kavachi was nicknamed “Sharkano” (shark and volcano) after a 2015 expedition to the site revealed that the crater was the rare home of two species of sharks. Which suggests that large marine animals can exist in an extreme environment, tolerating hot and acidic water. A hammerhead shark and silky shark were among the multiple species of fish the researchers observed living in the active volcano. In order to peer into the Kavachi crater, scientists deployed a baited camera to a depth of 50 meters, according to the journal Oceanography. The volcano erupts almost continuously, according to NASA, and steam and ash are often visible. The nearby island is named after a sea god of the Gatokae and Vangunu peoples. And sometimes it is also known as Rejo te Kvachi, which means “Kavachi Oven”.
