The violent eruption of Tonga’s Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano on Jan. 15, 2022, injected an unprecedented amount of water directly into the stratosphere – enough to fill more than 58,000 Olympic-size swimming pools.

“We’ve never seen anything like it,” said Luis Millán, an atmospheric scientist who works at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The article goes on to state the following:

When the volcano erupted, seawater came into direct contact with erupting lava and was superheated, creating “explosive steam.”


NASA shared a video of the eruption on Twitter, and wrote, “When the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano erupted on Jan. 15, it sent a tsunami around the world & set off a sonic boom that circled the globe twice. The eruption also sent a plume into the stratosphere with enough water vapor to fill more than 58k Olympic-size swimming pools.”

  1. Salt water turns to steam, steam condensed turns to rain, rain is fresh water which makes plants grow.
    SO WHATS THE PROBLEM?
    We now have 58,000 Olympic size pools of fresh water to drink, can anyone say….”THANK YOU LORD!”
