Vent GIS Data: The CoAxial Segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge
Entry ID: VENTS_GIS


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.
