Rank #1: Submarine Ring of Fire 2004: NW Eifuku Volcano, Extraordinary Champagne Vent

Podcast cover
Read more
Watch a NOAA video podcast on the Submarine Ring of Fire 2004 (SRoF'04) expedition to the Mariana Arc. This movie shows the discovery of the Champagne vent at northwest Eifuku volcano, where bubbles of liquid carbon dioxide are actively venting from sea-floor hot springs. This unusual phenomenon is due to the fact that the emissions from NW Eifuku volcano are particularly gas-rich. The high pressure at this depth keeps the carbon dioxide in a liquid state. Scientist discovered th Champagne vent at a depth of 1,607 meters (5272 feet more than 1 mile deep). Video courtesy of Submarine Ring of Fire 2004 Exploration, NOAA Vents Program, NOAA-OE.

This 2007 expedition to the Cayman Islands will set new benchmarks in ocean exploration technical diving research. Remarkable advances in this technology will allow for divers to share the excitement of the rarely explored Twilight Zone discoveries in a much more personal way.

Podcast cover

Watch a NOAA video podcast on the Submarine Ring of Fire 2006 (SRoF'06) return to the Mariana Arc, NW Rota-1 submarine volcano. This is the first time that glowing lava has ever been witnessed from a submarine volcanic eruption! In this case, the lava is rising in the vent so fast that a small glimpse of red glow can be seen intermittently before it crusts over or is blown apart. What a sight! Do you think the scientists were a little excited? Video courtesy of Submarine Ring of Fire 2006 Exploration, NOAA Vents Program, NOAA-OE.

Rank #7: The Hidden Ocean, Arctic 2005: Experience Under-Ice Diving

Podcast cover
Read more
While much of under-ice diving is similar to regular diving, there are a few important differences. First, the divers wear drysuits instead of wetsuits. These dry suits are sealed at the wrist and the neck and don't let any water in beyond the seals. Second, under-ice diving is usually performed using compressed air, not other mixed gases and the regulators used are specifically designed to be used in temperatures below freezing. Most different from regular diving operations, under-ice divers are tethered to the surface. Video footage courtesy of Shawn Harper, The Hidden Ocean, Arctic 2005 Exploration, NOAA-OE.

Rank #8: NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer: Mendocino Ridge 4,600ft Gas Plume Discovery

Podcast cover
Read more
Mendocino Ridge 4,600ft gas plume discovery off the California coast. Okeanos Explorer, "America's Ship for Ocean Exploration", is equipped with the latest in technology systems, including multibeam sonar. This technology involves sending beams of sonar to the ocean floor and measuring the amount of time it takes for those beams to bounce back to the ship. In doing so, the sonar creates a 3-D "sound picture", or map, of the seafloor. While the ship was testing its sonar off the coast of California, the sound waves bounced off gas in the water column, creating a remarkable image of a gas plume that rose 4,600 feet from the seafloor. A landslide area at the base of the plume has led some scientists to believe that the plume might be methane, released by the landslide from methane hydrates. Okeanos Explorer is preparing to explore the waters north of Indonesia in the summer of 2010, in collaboration with Indonesia. The ship will continue to explore the western Pacific in 2011.

Podcast cover
Read more
Watch a NOAA video podcast on the Submarine Ring of Fire 2006 (SRoF'06) expedition dive to the Mariana Arc, Daikoku submarine volcano. Molten sulfur and volcanic gases are bubbling out of a vent along the far wall of Sulfur Cauldron, keeping the partially-crusted surface of the pond undulating. Sometimes the heaving is so great that pieces of crust near the vent break off, tip on end, and are pulled downward by the convecting currents in the pond.
