Vent GIS Data: Juan de Fuca Ridge
Entry ID: VENTS_GIS_Juan

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: Hydrothermal vent locations have been determined by visits to the site
using various underwater instruments including submarines and remotely
operated vehicles. Positions are determined acoustically in a
relative X-Y grid and then translated into geographic positions based
on the transponder positions. The most reliable navigation from a site
visit is used as the vent's position.

The Axial volcano is seamount at 46 degrees North, 130 degrees West,
at the intersection of the Juan de Fuca Ridge and the Cobb seamount
chain. It rises 1100 m above the surrounding ocean floor to a minimum
depth of 1400 m below sea level.

All vent data is available in a shape file.
