- Tectonics & Seamounts
- Vent Video Frames
Use still images from two locations on a hydrothermal vent chimney at Axial Seamount to look if there are patterns over a year.
- Make a prediction about what kind of patterns in shape and size of the vent chimney, and the organisms living around it, you may observe over time on an active vent.
- Explore the data below to see what you can observe.
When the site loads, you are able to see an image from November 20, 2015 from the Scene 1 & 7 cameras. You can interact with the data by:
- Selecting a different part of the time series to explore the data in ways that interest you by moving the slider above the image to the right or left (or by using the right and left arrows).
Note, if you are interested in knowing what you are looking at check out the List of Organisms at Hydrothermal Vents.
