“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.
