Details for: Northern EPR at 9.8°N
Smoke pouring from a "black smoker" vent chimney at the Tica vent at 9 degrees North on the East Pacific Rise was photographed during a 2004 expedition sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Hot-vent animal communities such as seen in the foreground of this image that had been documented during November to December 1989 imaging were observed to have been buried by fresh basaltic lava flows in 1991. Another eruption in 2005-2006 produced lava flows that entrapped previously emplaced seismometers. Photo courtesy of Ridge2000, 2004 (http://www.ridge2000.org/eo/expeditions.php).
