A spectacular image of methane bubbles rising above a cold seep site. Methane
bubbles flow in a small stream out of the sediment on an area of seafloor
offshore Virginia north of Washington Canyon. Quill worms, anemones, patches of
bacterial mat, pandalid shrimp, and a large red crab (Chaceon quinquedens) can
be seen in and along the periphery of the seepage area.
