Description:

This story from National Public Radio highlights NOAA's unusually close observations of an underwater volcano in the northern Pacific Ocean, close to a subduction zone near the Mariana Islands. After locating the volcano in 2004, the crew returned in 2006 to witness and record an eruption. Robotic vehicles were able to get closer than anyone has ever been to an active volcano. Links on the page take interested viewers to two videos and more information on this expedition.
