That’s why the Pacific turns green here

Japan has three volcanic seamounts. One of them is active again after a long time. Because it transports sulfur and other materials, the otherwise deep blue surface of the water changes color.

Seen from space: The eruption of the underwater volcano Kaitoku turns parts of the Pacific green. The reason for this is the rising sulphur.

The deep blue suddenly glows green. When the volcano Kaitoku awakens, a spectacular spectacle can be observed in the Pacific.

North of the Japanese island of Iwo Jima, three of its peaks are about 100 meters below the surface of the water. While two of them have died out, the easternmost is still active: acidic and overheated seawater, which contains sulfur and volcanic rock debris, rises – and colors the sea surface green, as the “Spiegel” writes.
