Tokyo (AFP) - An erupting volcanic island that is expanding off Japan could trigger a tsunami if its freshly-formed lava slopes collapse into the sea, scientists said Tuesday.

The small, but growing, island appeared last year and quickly engulfed the already-existing island of Nishinoshima, around 1,000 kilometres (620 miles) south of Tokyo. It now covers 1.26 square kilometres (0.5 square miles).

The island's craters are currently spewing out 200,000 cubic metres (7 million cubic feet) of lava every day -- enough to fill 80 Olympic swimming pools -- which is accumulating in its east, scientists said.

"If lava continues to mount on the eastern area, part of the island's slopes could collapse and cause a tsunami," warned Fukashi Maeno, assistant professor of the Earthquake Research Institute at the University of Tokyo.

He said a rockfall of 12 million cubic metres of lava would generate a one metre (three feet) tsunami that could travel faster than a bullet train, hitting the island of Chichijima -- 130 kilometres away -- in around 18 minutes, he said.

Chichijima, home to some 2,000 people, is the largest island in the Ogasawara archipelago, a wild and remote chain that is administratively part of Tokyo.

"The ideal way to monitor and avoid a natural disaster is to set up a new tsunami and earthquake detection system near the island, but it's impossible for anyone to land on the island in the current situation," Maeno added.

An official from the Japan Meteorological Agency, which monitors earthquakes and tsunamis, said the agency is watching for any signs of anything untoward.

"We studied the simulation this morning, and we are thinking of consulting with earthquake prediction experts... about the probability of this actually happening, and what kind of measures we would be able to take," he said.

Japan's northeast was ravaged by a huge tsunami in March 2011, when a massive undersea earthquake sent a wall of water barrelling into the northeast coast, killing more than 18,000 people and wrecking whole towns.

科学家在周二表示,日本岛附近的一座爆发的火山岛,如果新形成的熔岩堆积滑入进海,将有可能引发海啸

这座不大的,但是一直在生长的小岛,在去年出现并且迅速吞并了之前已经存在的Nishinoshima小岛,距离东京南部越有1000公里,目前这个火山岛面积达到1.25平方公里。

从火山口目前每天喷射物有20万立方米,可以填满80个奥林会标准游泳池,喷射物堆积在东部。

“如果熔岩继续堆叠在东部,可能引起滑坡倾入进海,从而引发海啸。”Fukashi Maeno,东京大学研究院的地震助理教授表示。

他表示,1200立方米的熔岩崩塌将引发一米高的海啸,移动速度可能会超过高铁,在18分钟左右,袭击附近的Chichijima岛,这座岛在130公里外。

Chichijima,有2000居民,是小笠原群岛最大的岛屿,行政上属于东京管辖区。

“目前最理想监控并且比避免灾害的方式,就是在岛附近建立新的海啸和地震监测系统,但是以目前的情况,登岛不现实。”

一名监测地震和海啸的气象厅官员,表示正在监测任何意外的情况发生。

“我们今早进行了模拟实验,我们正在咨询地震预测专家,····目前的情况会引发什么,我们应该采取哪种手段。”他说。

日本东北部在2011年被海啸袭击,海底地震引发了海啸冲上东北部海岸,造成18000人死亡,摧毁了掉了一整个小镇。

评论翻译:

I'm sure the government in China will find that this island has expanded into their territory based on some ancient Chinese map thus making it theirs.

我敢肯定,中国政府将会盯上这个小岛,按照某一份中国古代地图把这个岛并入自己的领土。

This is one isle that no one will be disputing over.

这是座岛可没有任何领土争议问题

Has the Beijing clique claimed this islet for the Chinese motherland yet?

中国还没有宣称这座岛是中国的领土吗?

On the positive side if it collapses, at least the Chinese won't try to steal it like every other island in the Pacific.

如果这座岛崩塌了,至少中国就不会打这座岛的主意了,就像其他的太平洋岛屿那样

Another day another tsunami, that's Japan.又是海啸,这就是日本

Godzilla is coming...

哥斯拉来啦

Use air craft to shoot missals in the right spot to change the direction of the flow

用导弹改变海啸的方向

This and nearby islands are already declared territories of China.

这座岛和附近的岛屿,已经被中国宣布承包了

I wish a 7. Earthquake would hit Missouri right now,That would shut people up for a while.

我希望密苏里弗格森能来一次7级地震,这样大家都能闭嘴了
