Volcanoes of the Deep

February 26th, 2009 · No Comments

NW Rota-1, located near the Mariana Islands, is arguably the most active undersea volcano ever witnessed by man. The video above was taken during a 2006 mission to the Pacific’s depths; a University of Texas at Dallas professor will soon return to the scene of the violent eruption, aboard his trusty Shinaki 6500 submarine. Hope he’s able to kit it out with a high-def camera this time.
