Invisible submarine volcanoes suggested to look for noise in the ocean
Destruction from volcanoes that erupt on land, take us more than an eruption, hidden under a layer of ocean water. However, the latter are much more often and, as it turned out, produced a terrible noise in the underwater world.
Gabriel TEPP from the U.S. Geological survey is confident that the monitoring of the noise will help you learn more about the underwater volcanoes, which in the future will prevent damage to underwater equipment and to predict the eruption of volcanoes on land. The report, which he presented at the 174th meeting of the American acoustical society in New Orleans (La), the scientist reported the results of observations of two underwater volcanoes using remote equipment.
“It is very difficult to study submarine volcanoes because of the complexity of the use of necessary equipment in the water,” said TEPP. In the field of view of the team Teppa was restless mountain Ahi (Northern Mariana Islands, Pacific ocean) and the volcano Theological, partly comes ashore in the Aleutian Islands.
