New "island" in Arctic



Souce


It is the northernmost mainland on the planet, it is a new island unexpectedly discovered by a team of researchers from the University of Copenhagen, unexpectedly because scientists were taken by surprise, they were actually collecting samples in the extreme north of Greenland and they thought they were on the northernmost island in the world, or Oodaaq, but it turned out that they had landed their feet on a new little island, a little island that had emerged from the ice and that was 780 meters even further north than that island of Oodaaq.

The newly discovered island is about 30 x 60 meters wide and rises 3 to 4 meters above sea level, consists mainly of small mounds of silt and gravel and may be the result of a large storm that pushed material from the seabed to the surface, at the moment this little island has no name because scientists are not sure that the island is permanent and it is only an ephemeral little island that ends up disappearing with a new storm.

Time will tell us if the earth currently farthest north of the planet sinks back under the waters or ends up consolidating and increasing in size.
