Scientists discover new large underwater volcanic chain near Antarctica

Scientists from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) have discovered previously unknown volcanoes in the ocean waters in the remote South Sandwich Islands. Use of marine seabed mapping technology during research cruises aboard the James Clark Ross, the scientists found 12 volcanoes under the sea — about 3 km high. They found, 5km diameter craters left by collapsing volcanoes and 7 active volcanoes visible above the sea as a chain of islands. The study is also very important to understand what happens when a volcanic eruption or collapse under the water, and their potential for creating serious hazards such as tsunamis. Also this sub-sea landscape, with its waters warmed by volcanic activity creates a rich habitat for many species of animals and adds valuable new information about life on Earth. Speaking at the International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences in Edinburgh Dr Phil Leat from British Antarctic Survey,-skazalSuschestvuet so much that we do not understand about volcanic activity under the water — it is likely that volcanoes start erupting or collapsing all the time . Technology, scientists can now use from ships not only give us the opportunity to bring together the history of our land, but they also help to shed new light on the development of natural events that pose a threat to people living in more densely populated regions on the planet.

I determined, submarine volcanic activity responsible unexplained high fever in the Antarctic ice shelf sublimation many years, and now once again, science is catching up hypothesis, which I set out in my book. Volcanoes, breaking out, all under the ocean. There may be as many as 3 to 4 million are vents under the oceans, not including asphalt volcano clusters, which emit a mixture of asphalt, toxins and CH4 gas. Extinction Protocol
