Underwater Fire: Studying the Submarine Volcanoes of Tonga

Underwater Fire ~ Week 02 Video

Nov. 22 2017

“On these expeditions, I always have to remind myself that what we are seeing on the video screen or computer monitor is not somewhere else – it is right under our feet!”

The team is taking sensor readings and making maps to describe the current state of the volcano, in order to make the most out of their dives when they return with ROV Subastian. Researchers discuss the difficulties of locating and observing submarine volcanoes, and explain how they are using technology to overcome those obstacles in this week’s #UnderwaterFire video.
