Coral reefs are built by colonies of tiny animals found in marine waters that contain few nutrients. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polyps that cluster in groups. The polyps belong to a group of animals known as Cnidaria, which also includes sea anemones and jellyfish. Unlike sea anemones, corals secrete hard carbonate exoskeletons which support and protect the coral polyps. Most reefs grow best in warm, shallow, clear, sunny and agitated waters.

This footage captures Kavachi, a submarine volcano located in the Solomon Islands, in different stages. The volcano has emerged and eroded back into the ocean at least ten times since it was first recorded. It took several visits over a few years to film it.
