Hot spot again detected by satellite

A hot spot has been detected on Saunders Island in the data provided by the MODVOLC website dated 30th September 2015. This is most likely an indicator of volcanic activity on Mount Michael as the South Sandwich Islands in the south Atlantic Ocean lacks human activity. A hot spot was previously detected on Saunders Island during the 28th, the 30th, and the 31st August 2015.

  1. Is this a hot spot that moves through the island area or does it move under the plate that the island moves over?
