For instance, students will learn about the most active submarine volcano located 300 miles of the coast of Oregon — Axial Seamount. This submarine volcano is home to the first underwater research station called the Cabled Axial Seamount Array, from which researchers stream data and track underwater eruptions via fiber optic cables. Students will learn that researchers also monitor Axial Seamount using research vessels and remote operated vehicles.
