White smokers rise above chimneys at NW Eifuku submarine volcano, as photographed by a NOAA expedition in 2006. The bubbles are liquid carbon dioxide; Northwest Eifuku is one of two places where natural liquid carbon dioxide emission has been observed. NW Eifuku is a small submarine volcano that pales in size in comparison to its larger neighbors, but displays vigorous thermal activity. The summit of the basaltic Northwest Eifuku volcano lies 1551 m below the sea surface.
