Most volcanoes on Earth are located on the edges of tectonic plates. Others, such as Kilauea in Hawaii or the Piton de la Fournaise in Reunion Island, are situated at the center of oceanic plates and seem insensitive to tectonics. These hotspots have been very active for several tens of millions of years and their origin is hotly debated in the community of Earth Sciences. They could provide valuable information on the deep working of the planet and its cooling. Many of these hotspots are located in the middle of oceans, which makes them difficult to instrument. Technical advances in recent decades have enabled the safe deployment of measuring instruments on the ocean floor for long periods of measurement.The project RHUM-RUM has to image the deep structure of the earth, from the crust to the core, at a depth of 2900 km, around Reunion Island, to provide answers on the origin of this volcanism.
Located in an area known as The Vanilla Islands of the Indian Ocean, Réunion is one of the overseas departments of France. Like the other overseas departments, Réunion is also one of the 27 regions of France (being an overseas region) and an integral part of the Republic with the same status as those situated on the European mainland. Travel TV producer Bea Broda travels to some of the towns and beaches that help make the island a popular vacation retreat.
Reunion Island Travel Guide - Oh la la! After a long-haul flight, you step off the plane and you're greeted with a bonjour. Then you breakfast on croissants and chocolat chaud (hot chocolate). At first glance, Réunion is like a chunk of France teleported to the tropics. But beyond the Gallic panache, you'll soon realise it's a resplendent tapestry, which also blends Indian, African and Chinese influences. Home to one of the world's most active volcanoes, snow-capped Piton de Fournaise, Reunion Island is a little known gem. This rocky, French-governed island off the coast of East Africa is easily explored by Les Cars Jaunes, yellow buses that link main settlements. The road into the mountains provides breathtaking scenery. Bike tours on rough back roads are an option for the brave and the extremely fit. Beyond the reach of cars, untamed village Cirque de Mafate shows the island's wildest side. Enjoy Your Reunion Island Travel Guide! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNelMrk8czA
For decades residents of Reunion, a small French Territory in the middle of the Indian Ocean, lived in relative harmony with the surrounding ocean and its inhabitants. However, since 2011, a rise in shark attacks has forced many to come to terms with the spike in fatal encounters with sharks and turn to science to address this unexplained phenomenon In the full length documentary of "Surrounded: Island of the Sharks", Motherboard watches the full saga unfold.

For years, the residents of Réunion, a small island off the coast of Madagascar, have lived in coexistence with the vast ocean and its shark inhabitants that surround it. But since 2011, the number of shark attacks has increased to the point of crisis for the small island, leaving many puzzled as to what changed. In part one of this documentary, Motherboard investigates the potential ecological and man-made causes for this recent spike in contact between humans and sharks, and its impact on the evolving complexity of the relationship between man and nature on this tiny island.

With a mountainous volcanic terrain that is often hit by hurricanes, however, farming isn't always easy here. As one of the EU's outermost regions, Réunion get additional support from Brussels to compensate for the constraints of being offshore. In the area of agriculture, specific CAP funds are allocated to boost local production and subsidising expensive essential imports. In this Talking Europe agriculture special, we take a look at how those funds are used, as well as the island’s addiction to sugarcane which today accounts for 57 percent of its agricultural land.
