Estimated time to complete: 15 minutes
Materials needed: none
Re-view the following underwater eruption video.
- Record the volcanic activity you observe.
- Hypothesize with explanations what you think could be occurring to the seafloor bathymetry as well as below the seafloor based on what you learned from Lab 4.1 and Lab 4.2.
- Following discussions about the above two questions, compose your own explanation for your hypothesis that includes evidence from Activities 1 & 2 and key scientific ideas.
- What questions do you still have about what drives changes in the seismicity and/or bathymetry over time at Axial Seamount?
