Geography in Motion

Pakistani Island

The Pakistani earthquake, while sadly claiming the lives of a number of people also had an impact by creating a brand new island. In fact, by the time this post is published, the new island may have completely disappeared…why? Here, the National Geographic gives a good insight into the formation and destruction of these “mud islands”. Geography happening before our very eyes!
