Photo Gallery

Black smoker hydrothermal vents emitting high-chlorinity fluids were photographed at the "RM29" site at 18° 10’ S. This image was taken in November 1994 from the Japanese submersible Shinkai 6500. The axial crest of Segment J of the Southern East Pacific Rise consists of an asymmetrical shallow graben varying from 250 to 600 m wide with walls about 20 m high.
