Some island are formed when there is a large landmass and the sealevel rises, encompassing only some of the original land, and otherislands are formed when an undersea volcano goes off, at the cooleddown lava hardens to form landmasses. Eventually, the hardened lavaaccumulates to the point where the… island is large enough to liveon. ( Full Answer )
An island can be formed from volcanism, from sediment deposition, as a result of coral growth, from the breaking apart of continents or from a rise or fall in sea levels. They have occasionaly been formed by land-fill and when parts of a peninsula are drowned, leaving the remainder disconnected from… the larger body of land. When lava flows into the ocean it forms land which eventually forms an island. Think of volcanic islands as the tips of mountains sticking out of the ocean. ( Full Answer )
lakshadweep islands are called coral islands as polyps, over the years when die forms layers of land. it is a natural and slow phenomena. thus, like this Lakshadweep is formed.
An island may be formed by a volcano. Islands may also be formed when the coasts have eroded so much thatthey are no longer connected.
Three islands make up the Cayman Islands; Grand Cayman the largest, Cayman Brac the second largest and Little Cayman the smallest.
There are a total of 39 islands that make up Lakshadweep. There aretwelve atolls, three reefs and five submerged banks. The geographyof Lakshadweep changes frequently with growing reefs andfluctuating ocean levels.
Barrier islands are formed by waves carrying sediment layering up to where it exposes the sediment. Over time it builds up enough to walk on. (this could take thousands and thousands of years, so don't wait for one to form)
Most of the Pacific Islands have been formed by volcanoes or reefs rising above the water
The most common way of island formation is continental drift. Thisis when the continents break apart over hundreds of millions ofyears leaving land in the middle of the oceans, which are known asislands.
The Galapagos Islands were formed around five million years ago when underwater volcanoes started to rise from the ocean floor, resulting in the formation of around 20 rocky islands and more than 40 islets.
The Hawaiian Islands were each formed over a hot spot in the Earth's crust, creating a volcano. As the Pacific Plate has moved to the northwest, new islands have been created from that same hot spot over time.
The chain of islands is formed by volcanic action along a fissure between Japan and Alaska. The fissure leis in "The Aleutian Trench" as seen in the diagram below in "Related links".
Coral islands are created by tiny sea-creatures called polyps. In order to protect skeletons of Calcium carbonate. When they die, these skeletons turn into large masses of white limestone.
Well this is part of it..... Continental islands are bodies of land that lie on the continental shelf of a continent.
When subduction also occurs where the edge of a continental plate colides with an onceanis plate

It took over a 150 years to join the original seven islands of Mumbai. These seven islands were lush green thickly wooded, and dotted with 22 hills, with the Arabian Sea washing through them at high tide. Mumbai or Greater Mumbai today encompasses 436 sq km. It has been a natural shipping and tra…ding centre throughout its history and has grown in spite of lying in a seismically active zone. The original island of Mumbai was only 24 km long and 4 km wide from Dongri to Malabar Hill (at its broadest point) and the other six were Colaba, Old Woman's island, Mahim, Parel, Worli, Mazgaon. Though the list does not exhaust the number of islands that were merged into the modern city of Mumbai. In particular Salsette the large northern island, which remained under Portuguese control til 1739 is not counted among the seven. A massive stone causeway across the Flats of the island of Bombay (low lying areas between Dongri and Malabar Hill, separated by Island of Worli), is the only proof of work that was probably done to join the islands before the arrival of the Portuguese. But, after the British arrived, the demand for land steadily increased, and by 1730; it was becoming impossible to accommodate the entire population of Mumbai inside the Fort. The sea was making inroads at Worli, Mahim and Mahalaxmi, which turned the ground between the islands into a swamp, making travel between Mumbai islands hazardous. Many commuters going to Fort by boat between the islands lost their lives whenever there was a storm during the monsoons. The first major reclamation took place in 1708, to construct the causeway between Mahim and Sion. The second major reclamation took place in 1772, to stop the ingress of water and the consequent flooding of central Mumbai, and to connect Mahalaxmi and Worli. This is regarded as the oldest unauthorised construction that took place in Mumbai and the offender was the erstwhile Governor of Mumbai, William Hornby at a total expenditure Rs 1,00,000. The approval for the reclamation had been sought from the company of directors in England, Hornby did not expect a rejection and went ahead with the construction. The rejection arrived a year later, but, the causeway was complete and Hornby was sacked. This causeway was named Hornby Vellard, sealing the Great Breach (Breach Candy) between Dongri, Malabar hill and Worli. At the fortified Dongri hill, an esplanade and parade ground was cleared, from the walls of the Fort to the present day Crawford market. The flat lands (from Mahalakshmi to Kamathipura, named after the Kamathi workers from Andhra Pradesh who settled here) were reclaimed only after the completion of construction at Breach Candy by Hornby in 1784. In 1803, Mumbai was connected to Salsette by a causeway from Sion. Colaba Causeway joined the island of Colaba to Mumbai in 1838, and Mahim and Bandra were connected by a causeway in 1845 at a total cost of Rs 1, 57, 000 donated entirely by Lady Avabai Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy, wife of the first baronet Sir Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy (the government refused to build these causeways). Colaba Causeway The Thane and Colaba causeway were built during the tenure of Sir Robert Grant, the Governor of Mumbai. He was also responsible for the construction of a number of roads between Mumbai and the hinterland. The Colaba Causeway was completed in 1838 joining Colaba, Old Woman's island and the H-shaped island of Mumbai together. Land prices shot up and Colaba became the centre of commerce. The Causeway was widened and strengthened in 1861 and again in 1863 (Cusrow Baug is built on the causeway). The horse drawn tramcars revolutionised transport in Colaba. The Prongs Lighthouse was constructed off the island in 1875 and in the same year the Sassoon Docks were built by David Sassoon on reclaimed land. The BB & CI (Bombay and Central India ) Railways established a terminus at Colaba. 90,000 sq. yards of land was reclaimed on the western shore of Colaba by the City Improvement Trust, though opposed by eminent citizens like Sir Pherozeshah Mehta the work was completed in 1905. A seaside promenade (Cuffe Parade) was completed the next year and was named after T W Cuffe of the Trust. The next reclamation came in 1836, when the development of the Mumbai port had already begun. Major quarrying had already begun in 1870. The hills of Chinchpokli and Byculla were quarried and dumped into the sea, to fill the land near the railway line, the swamps and also the port to prevent the accumulation of stagnant water. The first railway line was laid down in 1855 from Bori Bunder to Thane. Byculla soon became a fashionable place to live in, bungalows of the British and affluent Indians came up. The armoury was moved from the Bombay Castle to Mazgaon in 1760 and the docks were completed in 1790. It was in 1793, that William Hornby built Bellasis Road to join Mazgaon with Malabar Hill. This left Mazgaon landlocked with the reclamations of the docks, mills came up and became the work area for the next 30 years. The fumes from the mills drove the people out from Mazgaon and into Byculla. With the closure of the breach, Byculla came into great demand as a prosperous and an elegant suburb with grand British and Parsi homes with a church that eclipsed St Thomas's Cathedral in the Fort area. The Byculla Railway station was completed in 1857. By 1862 the town become widespread and the constructions that took place began to give rise to the modern city of Mumbai. This became a regular feature in the succeeding years. The Fort walls were demolished and the tanks right up to Parel were filled. From 1870 to 1970, industrial and commercial development prospered, which increased the spate of reclamation that ended with the famous Backbay reclamation. The opening of the Suez in 1869 made the city prosperous, additional plans were made to reclaim more land for building roads and wharves. Mumbai began to attract fortune hunters and the population grew from 13,726 in 1780 to 644,405 in 1872 in less than a hundred years. By 1906 the population of Mumbai was 977, 822. Backbay Reclamation Mumbai recognised its potential as a centre of maritime commerce. Gerald Aungier, second Governor of Bombay, developed the harbour, docks and industrial base, especially for the Parsi, Jain, and Muslim merchants and manufacturers from Gujarat. Its growing cotton trade gained momentum with the American Civil War, which had stopped the American supplies of cotton to Europe, and increased further due to the opening of the Suez Canal. Mumbai's prosperity was seen in its impressive civic and commercial buildings that came up in the second half of the 19th century. Many still exist to give Mumbai its character as the repository of Victorian architecture. A blend of colourful bazaars, religious structures, and vernacular houses, crowded into narrow winding lanes, collectively display an incredible dynamism. The first Backbay Reclamation Company (BRC) was formed in the 1860s with the express purpose to reclaim the whole of Backbay. With the end of the American Civil War in 1865, land prices fell. The government took over the narrow strip of land created by the BRC and gave it to the BB & CI Railways (Bombay Baroda and Central India) to construct a new line between Churchgate and Colaba. A proposal was made in 1917 to reclaim 607 hectares of land between Colaba and Backbay by a group of prominent citizens and a private company. The project was taken over by the Development Directorate who planned to reclaim 463 hectares and would have to relocate the Colaba terminus, which was moved to Bombay Central. Eventually, in the meantime, W R Davidge proposed a development of wide-open spaces into recreational spaces, residential and commercial areas. It would take them until 1945 and cost them a total of Rs 11 crores, to complete the project. The Backbay Enquiry Committee spearheaded by K F Nariman found irregularities such as an inefficient dredging craft and a newly constructed sea-wall, which had already let slip 900,000 cubic yards of mud through it. Eventually 177 hectares was developed by 1929 of which 94 hectares was sold to the military for Rs 2.06 crores and 6 hectares was incorporated into the Marine Drive and its sea wall. Independence did not end the reclamation work but a third Backbay Reclamation was put into effect and yielded the acreage on which stand the high rises of Nariman Point and Cuffe Parade. East of the Naval Dockyards some land was reclaimed and work was done to the north too. Eventually, the Supreme Court injunction protecting the shoreline and access for fishermen has slowed down the work since 1970. And the Supreme Court has added more restriction in 1990s with the Coastal Regulatory Zones. The Backbay Reclamation Project symbolised a major shift in the spirit of the city from Victorian to an International city. by Sajid khan ( Full Answer )

It is formed by a convergent boundary of an oceanic plate and continental plate when they hit each other and goes down into the asthenosphere thus making the magma to rise above the earth's surface making a volcano.Then it solidifies and therefore it makes a volcano island.
Yes, when an underwater volcano erupts, the lava is cooled in the water forming stone, this can build up to form an island. The Hawaiian islands are a good example.
High islands are form by the Volcanic activity e.g-the heat inside the mountain is too large and it start to make it may out of the mountain once it get it way out from that time it spread out form the place where it is release form it

Technically, no. not all mountains and islands are created by volcanoes. They can be created by movement of the tectonic plates. You see, there can be different collisions with tectonic plates: They can be oceanic-continental collisions, oceanic-oceanic collisions, and continental-continental collis…ions. Usually, the denser plate get pushed down in the collision into the upper mantle of magma (below the oceanic plate) and can create many land, and oceanic forms. Such as a series of volcanoes, mountains, etc. Sometimes this can be the case for islands too. So no, volcanoes did not create all mountains and islands. However, they do make a lot of the islands and mountains that we see today. This happens by the magma spewing out of the volcano through vents, and of course the top. Once the lava hardens, it creates a new layer of rock, therefore making itself bigger. Some mountains, and islands can be the result of this. I hope this helped to answer your questions ( Full Answer )
The Mariana's Islands were formed because as the plate went down, it took water with it. The water boiled and bubbled up and made the magma shoot up to the top.
