Well, I think the shape of the "Island" is way to similar over the years to believe their explanation without further evidence, sounds just like speculations to me!

Probably due to global warming.

And humans can't be blamed as we aren't there, right?

Seriously if a gas bubble make an island disappear,  wouldn't the island  have been resting on the bubble(s) in the first place?

Here we report that our numerical model, when combined with experimental data found in the literature, shows that Ligeia Mare's bed is a favourable place for nitrogen exsolution.

Exsolution. Great word!

Well, if you want to play like that, actually according to the second law of thermodynamics, yes it is.

As far as I understand, they are not islands, they only look like ones from satellite images up above. 

Apparently they are just a lot of bubbles on the surface, reflecting the light in a manner resembling a solid surface.

Maybe those 'islands' are something analogous to our algal blooms, which can come and go in relatively short periods of time.
