Please help me.


"The Galapagos, located in South America's Pacific coast, attract many tourists, some of whom have caused various problems to its environment."


We can see these kinds of sentences a lot around us and I was wondering if 'which is' is omitted there or we should think of it as a participial construction? Or either one is fine and we should decide by contexts?
I hope to make my point and question clear and I really hope to hear from you again. Thank you so much.


PS. In the end, I think "located in..." is a participial construction form so we can say that both 'located in' is a reduced non-defining relative clause and a participal construction. What do experts think about it?
