On the #UnderwaterFire expedition, researchers are solving volcano related puzzles, piecing together the history of several close – and related – submarine volcanoes.

Take a look at some of the 4K resolution highlights gathered by ROV SuBastian and hear Principal Investigator Dr. Ken Rubin explain more.
