Earthquake creates a new island in Balochistan

Earthquake creates a new island: Off the coast of Pakistan, a new island rose from the seafloor on Tuesday. The “mud island” rose from the seafloor near Gwadar on September 24, shortly after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake rattled the Balochistan province of northwestern Pakistan. The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) captured this image of a new island off the coast of Pakistan on September 26, 2013. The Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite is an advanced land-imaging mission that demonstrates new instruments and spacecraft systems. EO-1 was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California on November 21, 2000.
