MBARI mapped the 2011 eruption at Axial Volcano with our AUV. Surprises included how most of the fissures had been pre-existing, and were reused (even widened and deepened) and fed lava into pre-existing channels.
AUV maps allow us for the first time, to comprehensively map the thickness and extent of lava flows from a deep-ocean submarine eruption in high resolution.
Research programs at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) encompass the entire ocean, from the surface waters to the deep seafloor, and from the coastal zone to the open sea. The need to understand the ocean in all its complexity and variability drives MBARI's research and development efforts.
