Antarctic Research

OPB | Feb. 7, 2008 12:30 p.m.

A team from Oregon State University studies underwater volcanic activity in the Antarctic by comparing Antarctic events to those off the coast of Oregon. The live volcanoes near the South Pole are similar to those that created the Cascade Range in Oregon and Washington. The team goes into cold and dangerous waters every year, using audio and video equipment to look for underwater volcanoes and to record seismic activity.
