Kavachi, in the Solomon Islands, is among the world's most active submarine volcanoes.

When it erupts, the lava it spews forms temporary islands on the surface of the Pacific Ocean. (Eventually, the motion of the ocean disperses the volcanic matter, and the islands disappear.)


The water near the volcano is intolerably hot for humans. Amazingly, though, sharks and fish inhabit the area and don't seem to mind the conditions. Including the rare Pacific Sleeper Shark, of which very little is known.
