Crater Lake Mapping


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Using advanced mapping technology, scientists are able to study the varied contours of the bottom of Crater Lake. Until now, the depths of the lake, which was formed by a massive volcanic explosion, were a mystery. Now computer technology can process acoustic signals bounced off the bottom.
