At a remote location off the coastline of North Wales (Latitude = 53.4160, Longitude = -4.4514) scientists and marine biologists have discovered a small active underwater volcano.

The volcano has been dormant for many thousands of years but recent seismic activity has caused the volcano to erupt forcing large quantities of molten lava into the surrounding water. The heat from the ejected lava has raised the local water temperature to a tropical 26° C and has attracted brightly coloured fish normally found in warmer climates.

It is hoped that the live webcam will monitor the  regular seismic and volcanic activity for many years and regular updates will be posted to the scientific community. In order to identify the volcano it has been designated as volcano #IV0109 until it is formally named by a committee in early April.
