  1. Hi Bruce, are you still there? Here is one for you, fresh out:

    “Monitoring and Modelling the Rapid Evolution of Earth’s Newest Volcanic Island: Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai (Tonga) Using High Spatial Resolution Satellite Observations” (J. B. Garvin, D. Slayback, V. Ferrini, J. Frawley, C. Giguere, G. R. Asrar, K. Andersen)

    “We have monitored a newly‐erupted volcanic island in the Kingdom of Tonga, unofficially known as Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai (HTHH), by means of relatively‐frequent high spatial resolution (~50 cm) satellite observations. The new ~1.8 km2 island formed as a tuff cone over the course of a month‐long hydro‐magmatic eruption in early 2015 in the Tonga‐Kermadec volcanic arc. … suggest a lifetime of ~19 years (and potentially up to 42 years). The ability to measure details of a young island’s landscape evolution using satellite remote sensing has not previously been possible at these spatial and temporal resolutions.”
