In a sense, Axial is a hybrid feature, created where a hot-spot intersects a mid-ocean ridge. (2011). The profiles P1, P2, and P3 highlight along-axis variations in the axial dome morphology. The most productive volcanic systems on Earth are hidden under an average of 8,500 feet (2,600 m) of water. Axial Seamount is the best monitored submarine volcano in the world, providing an exceptional window into the dynamic interactions between magma storage, transport, and eruption processes in a mid‐ocean ridge setting. Flows with this morphology form during moderate effusion-rate eruptions lasting for weeks or longer. Likewise, similar complex advance of inflated hummocky flows was described in Clague et al. In general, off-axis seamount lavas are more primitive than axial lavas. Explosive processes during the 2015 eruption at Axial Seamount, as recorded by seafloor hydrophones. Annual research cruises have collected chemical, geological, and biological data at Axial Seamount for more than three decades, making this one of the longest time series for a deep-sea volcanically driven hydrothermal system. Seamounts - characteristics, formation, mineral deposits ... etry against tectonic context shows a clear link between overall morphology and seamount position relative to ridge structure. Axial ridges (red) and fracture zones (black). The Scarborough Seamount chain, present at the axis of the extinct South China Sea spreading center, is being subducted obliquely along the Manila Trench. Petrology of Axial Seamount, mainly based on samples from the south caldera and south rift zone. However, the WVZ is still able to maintain a MAR-like morphology with axial volcanic ridges, volcanoes scattered on the valley floor and rift valley walls consisting of high-angle faults. (1990). The edifices selected have well defined boundaries and show variation in dimension, morphology of their summit, and duration of the impulsive sound. Pyrite from Buchans (Newfoundland), Kosaka (Japan), Axial Seamount and Explorer Ridge volcanogenic massive sulphide bodies are included in the study. Comparing seamount abundance with axial morphology, crustal thickness, and the presence and depth of an axial magma chamber (AMC), we find that the transition from point-source to fissure-fed eruptions is most sensitive to the presence of a steady-state AMC. Seamount number 1 is the . Chadwick, W.W., Jr., and Embley, R.W., 1994, Lava flows from a mid-1980s submarine eruption on the Cleft segment, Juan de Fuca Ridge, J. Geophys. Axial Seamount is the largest and most active volcano on the Juan de Fuca Ridge spreading center. The magma and lava create the edges of new oceanic plates and supply heat and chemicals to some of the . • Generally, the morphology of the flat top is not very reflective of the morphology of the total tablemount, however, weak correlations were observed between: • Total Distance (of the profile) and Top Distance (positive, R2=0.2323), indicating that Top Distance generally increases with Total Axial Distance of the tablemount. Each rift zone has a steady downward slope of ~3° outside the caldera. It is the cur- rent location of the Cobb hotspot, which provides an enhanced magma supply, and gives it character- istics of both a mid-ocean ridge segment and a hot- MORPHOLOGY Seamount morphology is controlled by: local and regional tectonic settings, sediment cover, physico-, ., ° ° ° . nov., collected from the Yap Seamount, near Palau, Western Pacific (8°51'N, 137°47'E), is described and illustrated. 15-20 cm long and around 1 cm in diameter, this morphology is flimsier, and has flanges, which can be found along the length of the tube. Generally, seamount is not an island because it does not reach the ocean's surface; it is actually a mountain rising from the ocean seafloor. 500 km off the Oregon coast (USA) at the intersection of the Cobb hotspot and the Juan de Fuca Ridge spreading center (Fig. between seamount volcanism and axial morphology along four ISRs: the Juan de Fuca Ridge (JdFR), the Galápagos Spreading Centers (GSC), the Southeast Indian Ridge (SEIR), and the Eastern Lau Spreading Centers (ELSC). . seamount population density, distribution, and morphology on the rift valley floor [e.g., Smith and Cann, 1990, 1992] have led to a general model for eruptions at the MAR [e.g., Smith et al., 1995; Head et al., 1996]. . Annual research cruises have collected chemical, geological, and biological data at Axial Seamount for more than three decades, making this one of the longest time series for a deep-sea volcanically driven hydrothermal system. Seismic data from both segments are used to map the depth and width of the magma lens and the thickness of layer 2A, the seismically inferred extrusive crust. High-resolution AUV mapping and lava flow ages at Axial Seamount. is focused on the tropical realm. Google Scholar Hammond SR, Delaney JR (1985) Evolution of Axial Volcano, Juan de Fuca Ridge (Abstr). The maps show 52 post-410 CE lava flows and 20 precaldera lava flows as old as 31.2 kyr, the inferred age of the caldera. The Cleft Segment, at the south end of the Juan de Fuca Ridge, has an axial high morphology while the northern segment of the Gorda Ridge has a rift valley. An eruption in April 2015 produced the largest volume of erupted lava since monitoring and mapping began in the mid‐1980s after the shortest repose time, due to a recent . Horning, G., Juan Pablo Canales, Suzanne M. Carbotte, Shuoshuo Han, Hélène Carton, M. R. Nedimović, and P. E. Keken. The eastern and western edges of the axial dome (in red), defined at the point of rupture between the relief of the dome and the adjacent abyssal plains are determined based on 178 cross-axis bathymetric profiles, spaced 500 m apart (ex. 1). Axial Seamount is an active deep sea volcano located on the Juan . 99, 4761-4776. Occurrence of such an axial seamount is very unusual at a spreading center J Geophys Res 95:12875-12894. Meter-scale AUV mapping of 85-km of the summit and rift zones of Axial Seamount shows systematic variation in morphology of the lava flows with depth and distance from the caldera. Seamount density at the Eastern Volcanic Zone (EVZ) is ∼45% that of the WVZ (∼25% that of the MAR). Several contain geophysical instruments seismometers and hydrophones paired with pressure-tilt devices to monitor volcanic inflation and deflation. We conduct a series of studies which focus on the axial valley morphology, large seamount morphology, the distribution of small seamounts and large seamounts on the ridge, and admittance studies.

Vertical profiles of particulate Fe and S over the eruption site show high concentrations from about 1400 m to . The Morphology of the Tasmantid Seamounts: Interactions between Tectonic Inheritance and Magmatic Evolution . Axial Seamount erupted again in April 2011 and there are remarkable similarities between the 1998 and 2011 eruptions, particularly the locations of eruptive vents and lava flow morphologies. Major element chemistry also suggests that the magmas of off-axis seamounts are produced at higher pressure and with less melting than axial cone lavas. Robust magmatic production at Axial Seamount has resulted in one of the largest and most ac-tive, on-axis submarine volcanoes on the global MOR system. It is the youngest volcano of the Cobb-Eickelberg Seamount Chain. 203092 Abstract Title: Earthquake Stress Drop Before, During, and After the 2015 Eruption at Axial Seamount, 203107 Abstract Title: Stressing Rate Changes Associated with the 2015 Axial Seamount Eruption, 203433 Abstract Title: Seismic and Acoustic Constraints on the Dynamics of the Submarine Eruption Cycle at Axial Seamount Although the ridge spreads at a medium rate (29 mm yr −1 halfrate) 3, a significant portion of its crest has a morphology typical of faster spreading ridges; the axial valley is 1-2 km wide within. J Geophys Res 95:12875-12894. I currently have active research projects at the following deep-water ridges: East Pacific Rise (9-10˚N), Mid-Atlanitc Ridge (37˚N), Gakkel Ridge (85˚E), Axial . Geophysical and Geochemical Contraints on Submarine Volcanic Processes. The morphology of this seamount, together with other smaller volcanoes, suggests that the magma may have been high viscosity material. Describes the 1986 North Cleft eruption distribution and morphology. Major element chemistry also suggests that the magmas of off-axis seamounts are produced at higher pressure and Comparing seamount abundance with axial morphology, crustal thickness, and the presence and depth of an axial magma chamber (AMC), we find that the transition from point-source to fissure-fed . Axial Seamount erupted again in April 2011 and there are remarkable similarities between the 1998 and 2011 eruptions, particularly the locations of eruptive vents and lava flow morphologies. In contrast, cones on the floor of the axial rift valley have Mg# 62-65. In summary, the correlation between seamount High-resolution mapping of the 1998 lava flows at Axial Seamount. (2017) for part of the 2015 lava flow on Axial Seamount. However, along regions of the GSC where gravity, seismic, and bathymetric data show the effect of the hotspot to be greatest, seamount formation becomes less significant, probably because low-relief lava flows emplaced by fissure eruptions along-axis are the dominant form of constructional volcanism. Axial Seamount is located. Because the 2011 eruption reused most of the same eruptive fissures, 58% of the area of the 1998 lava flows is now covered by 2011 lava. We show that the long wavelength trends in geophysical data, geochemical data, and axial valley morphology are well correlated. To describe and visualize the morphology of this huge margin better, we divided it into three major regions: Equatorial, Oriental, and Meridional.

Between 31 ka and 410 CE, there are no known lava flows near the summit. 2016. 2] Axial Seamount (Figure 1a) is an active sub- marine volcano located on the Juan de Fuca Ridge (JdFR), a spreading center in the northeast Pacific Ocean [Johnson and Embley, 1990]. Geologic history of the summit of Axial Seamount, Juan de Fuca Ridge erupted on Axial Seamount on the Juan de Fuca spreading center in 2015 (Clague et al., 2017). The Phoenix seamount could have been emplaced during the terminal activity of the ridge. Axial Seamount is the largest and most active volcano on the Juan de Fuca Ridge spreading center. "A 2‐D tomographic model of the Juan de Fuca plate from accretion at axial seamount to subduction at the Cascadia margin from an active source ocean bottom seismometer survey. A prominent seamount chain with depths as shallow as 1300 m extends within ~20 km of the ridge on its west flank. A subsurface strong scattering layer is associated with the depth at which methane hydrate disassociates and is collocated with a high density zone of lantern fish.

Axial Seamount is located on the spreading axis of the Juan de Fuca Ridge (458569N, 1308W), and the caldera (3 km 3 8km3 100 m deep) occurs at ;1,550 m depth (Fornari and Embley 1995). Five medium-power Junction Boxes are located on the Axial Caldera site. Unknown Anemone 3 This small, orange-hued anemone is quite squat and nearly flat, with short tentacles. However, along regions of the GSC where gravity, seismic, and bathymetric data show the effect of the hotspot to be greatest, seamount formation becomes less significant, probably because low-relief lava flows emplaced by fissure eruptions along-axis are the dominant form of constructional volcanism. In this study, we present a detailed analysis of the emplacement of three edifices on the north rift of Axial Seamount during the 2015 eruption (Figure 1). The orange fiber optic cables are connected to power and communication ports . Five medium-power Junction Boxes are located on the Axial Caldera site. AXIAL SEAMOUNT - A combined study of mapping, observational, age constraint, and geochemical data at the summit of Axial Seamount, Juan de Fuca Ridge, has revealed its recent petrological history. Flows with this morphology form during moderate effusion-rate eruptions Applying MBOA to determine the seamount abundance, volume and spatial distribution along the ISRs indicate that (1) seamounts do not form at the ends of segments along the JdFR, GSC or ELSC, but do form at the ends of segments along the SEIR, (2) a systematic relationship exists between axial morphology and ridge migration in the hotspot . Axial Seamount is an underwater volcano about 470 kilometers (290 miles) off the coast of Oregon, on the Juan de Fuca mid-ocean ridge, which is the spreading boundary between the Pacific and Juan de Fuca tectonic plates.
