"Hydrographic Map of the Siberian Sea". Although unattributed, this appears to be data acquired during the voyage of the VEGA across the Northeast Passage from northern Europe to the Pacific Ocean 1878-1879. Leader of the Swedish scientific expedition was Nils Adolf Erik Nordenskiold and the captain of the vessel was Louis Palander, a Swedish naval officer.

Russian map of Arctic Ocean north of Siberia. Longitude from 120 to 137 East. Latitude from 70 30 N to 74 N. Original map apparently produced sometime after 1884 as that is the latest date found on the map.

The Atlantis Massif or Seamount is bounded to the east by the slow-spreading Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and to the south by the Atlantis Fracture Zone. It rises 14,000 feet from the seafloor and is a bit larger than the Cascade Volcano Mt. Rainier. It was formed by faulting rather than volcanic activity. The Lost City vent field is located near the top on crust that is 1.5 million year old.
7212 thumbnail picture
The Mid-Atlantic Ridge hosts numerous hydrothermal vent fields. Logatchev, Rainbow, and Saldahna are underlain by variable mixtures of deeper crustal rocks (gabbro and peridotite) and both Logatchev and Rainbow host high-temp black smokers. The other fields are also black smokers but are hosted on volcanic rocks. Lost City is the only known field composed of carbonate chimneys.
7213 thumbnail picture
Generalized cartoon showing the various "layers" of rock that make up the oceanic crust. At Lost City, long-lived faulting has stripped off much of the overlying crust, which has resulted in exposure of peridotite rocks at the surface of the seafloor.

This map identifies the cruise operations accomplished during the Northeast Lau Response Cruise in 2009. This cruise focused on the eruptive sites at West Mata and the Northeast Lau spreading center. The inset puts the operations area in geographic context. Volcano "O" is a remarkable volcanic caldera.

An overall perspective of the multibeam sonar data collected over the Mid-Cayman Rise by the Okeanos Explorer. The perspective is looking west-north-west, and Mount Dent is seen in the foreground.
