Volcanic Arcs Form by Deep Melting of Rock Mixtures

A new study published in the journal Science Advances changes our understanding of how volcanic arc lavas are formed, and may have implications for the study of earthquakes and the risks of volcanic eruption. 

WHOI-Operated ROV Jason Images the Discovery of the Deepest Explosive Eruption on the Sea Floor

Oceanographers using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Jason discovered and recorded the first video and still images of a deep-sea volcano actively erupting molten lava on the seafloor.

Geologists Discover Signs of Volcanoes Blowing their Tops in the Deep Ocean

A WHOI research team has uncovered evidence of explosive volcanic eruptions deep beneath the ice-covered surface of the Arctic Ocean. Such violent eruptions of splintered, fragmented rock—known as pyroclastic deposits—were not thought possible at great ocean depths because of the intense weight and pressure of water and because of the composition of seafloor magma and rock.

Researchers Compile Most Detailed Map of an Underwater Eruption

Examining more than 50,000 seafloor images, geologists have created the most detailed map ever assembled for a volcanic eruption along a fast-spreading mid-ocean ridge.

Real-Time Seismic Monitoring Station Installed Atop Active Underwater Volcano

A new mooring and seismic monitoring system will significantly improve the ability of natural hazard managers to protect the residents of Grenada from gases, eruptions, and tsunamis caused by the Kick'em Jenny volcano.

Smoke and Sulfur: Undersea Vehicle Captures Footage of Volcanic Eruption

Dramatic new video of a long-term volcanic eruption in the western Pacific first discovered in 2004 has been captured during a recent cruise by the remotely operated vehicle JASON, developed and operated by WHOI’s Deep Submergence Laboratory.
