Undersea Eruptions

OPB | Oct. 9, 2008 1:30 p.m.

Scientists such as Dr. Steve Hammond and Dr. Bill Chadwick of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and OSU study the eruption of undersea volcanoes off the Oregon Coast. The scientists use robotic submarines to examine these massive underwater eruptions and gain a better understanding of the chemical processes at play. Through this research scientists hope to find solutions to the ocean’s increasing acidification.
