Sea-Floor Sunday #71: Live feed from active submarine volcano
This week’s Sea-Floor Sunday image is from a site I saw linked to by various folks the past week. As part of NSF’s Ocean Observatories Initiative they have included a live feed from Axial Volcano, an active volcano along the Juan de Fuca ridge offshore of Oregon. This is a great idea and, similar to video feeds for volcanoes on land, observatories like this will be important for capturing submarine volcanic activity. Check out the daily log of this research cruise.
Clicking on the image below will take you to the page with the live feed.
Here’s a map of the location of Axial Volcano and check out this page to learn more.
