5019 thumbnail picture
Classic pillow lava with red holothurian.
2011 July 15
5020 thumbnail picture
Pillow lavas and murky water. Perhaps hydrothermal activity is close by.
2011 July 15
5021 thumbnail picture
Ropy pahoehoe lava on seafloor preserves direction of flow of lava. Perhaps . arcuate appearing area in lower left is indicative of eddy in fast moving sheet flow.

5022 thumbnail picture
Lava structure on sea floor.
2011 July 15
5023 thumbnail picture
An archway formed by lava pillars supporting a remnant of intact lobate lava flow crust within a large collapsed lava lake. Individual ledges on the pillar form as "bathtub rings" as the lava freezes to the side of the pillar during the draining of the lava lake.

5024 thumbnail picture
Rock outcrop with brisingid starfish
2011 July 15
5025 thumbnail picture

5028 thumbnail picture
A collapsed pillow lava
2011 July 15
5029 thumbnail picture
A remarkable field of pillow lavas

5030 thumbnail picture
Circular patterns in rock outcrop with indications of hydrothermal alteration.
2011 July 15
5031 thumbnail picture
Baked appearance to rock surface
2011 July 15
5032 thumbnail picture
Crevasse cutting through pillow lavas. Murky water indicates nearby hydrothermal activity.
2011 July 15
5033 thumbnail picture
Pillow lavas with hundreds of dead mussel shells littering spaces between pillows. A hydrothermal vent community was here in the past but the activity has apparently ceased in this area leading to the death of the associated chemosynthetic community.
2011 July 15
5034 thumbnail picture
Smooth baked appearance with pink alteration along cracks.
2011 July 15
5035 thumbnail picture
Baked appearance to rock surface with indications of hydrothermal alteration.
2011 July 15
5036 thumbnail picture
A fresh lava flow of black pillow lavas overlying older pillow lavas having sediment cover. Creation in process.
2011 July 15
5037 thumbnail picture
Baked appearing rock with circular shatter patterns and some indication of hydrothermal alteration.
2011 July 15
5038 thumbnail picture
A smooth pahoehoe lava flow with a pinkish red holothurian.
2011 July 20
5039 thumbnail picture
Yellow and brown hydrothermal alteration
2011 July 21
5040 thumbnail picture
A collapsed pillow lava with the lava frozen in place after flowing out.

5041 thumbnail picture
Yellow areas along crack possibly iron oxide staining but without sampling to verify its composition, it could also be of biological origin
2011 July 24
5042 thumbnail picture
Yellow areas along crack possibly iron oxide staining but without sampling to verify its composition, it could also be of biological origin. The black rim surrounding the yellow area coupled with a hint of white and gray lends credence to the possibility of its being of biological origin.
2011 July 24
5043 thumbnail picture
Patterns of black staining on a sand and mud bottom area. Is this material of geological or biological origin?
2011 July 24
5044 thumbnail picture

2011 July 24
5046 thumbnail picture
A large dead mussel shell indicating hydrothermal venting in this area in the past.
2011 July 24
5047 thumbnail picture
Black patterns on a sediment substrate. As with image expl6429, is this material of geological or biological origin?
2011 July 24
5048 thumbnail picture
A clam shell and mussel shells in association with pillow lavas.
2011 July 16
5049 thumbnail picture
