nice vid: slow buffering but results definitely ok to see.

Lava delta spread is very impressive & appears to be about to overtop the old island, The vent over the top of the original nii-jima cone is visible but is very small, The original surtseyan cone appears to now be completely buried by lava.

Apparently the lava type is "trachyandesite".

have a nice day: Ag
