Undersea Volcanic Eruption Caught On Video

“This is a process happening all the time,” says research scientist Dr Joseph Resing. (And we wonder what is heating the seas.)

Underwater volcanic eruptions and magma flows on the sea floor have been seen for the first time ever thanks to video captured by NOAA. James Williams talks to the lead scientist on the project to learn the story behind the explosive images.

Dr Resing, with the Joint Institute for the study of Atmosphere and Ocean, was the chief scientist on this expedition.

  1. bloody excellent!!!!
    now think about the warnings for the Laze coming from hawaiis lava meets ocean- hydrochloric acid strong enough to burn skin etc
    what do you think undersea gems like this and a few thousand others popping or oozing daily produce?
    and the fearmongers are telling us Co2 is making the oceans acid….
    oh? really
    and then theres the quieter but determined black smoker type vents super hot and super saturated with all sorts of minerals /chem mixes, and their own unique adapted life forms to boot.
    the warmists who are so convinced that they “know” the truth and are in the 98% believers goracle follower faithful
    would appear to know more of Jack Schitt and his brothers than whats actually occurring in the real world.;-)

  2. Notice he said 80% of the eruptions on the earth are happening underwater!! So with decreasing sunspots and the corresponding decrease in earths magnetic field we have been noticing an increase in volcanic activity, resulting in warming oceans releasing more CO2 as a result. The minuscule 4% humans contribute is minor compared to the natural releases. So the warming first then the CO2 increase, hmmm?

    • With more than three million underwater volcanoes worldwide, I’m more inclined to think that 99.999999999 percent of all volcanic activity occurs underwater.

  3. Fyi Merapi cleared his throat again last night for third time in two weeks. 4 minutes rising 6000 m.

  4. Many years ago similar pictures and videos, though less impressive because only in black and white, were taken on the mid-atlantic rift by a joint franco-american team named “FAMOUS”.
