This website explores an active submarine volcano just off the Oregon coast, Axial Seamount, on the Juan de Fuca Ridge. On this site, users explore an interactive 3-D model of the seafloor and can view hydrothermal vents and fresh lava flows. At each of the six virtual tour sites there is an animated tour, an interactive panorama, links to video clips taken by a remotely operated vehicle (ROV), and a description of the geological and biological highlights of the site. The field trip also includes a multimedia gallery of video clips, a catalog of hydrothermal vent fauna, and a concept gallery.
