Volcanic Seafloor at the East Pacific Rise Crest
Volcanic seafloor at 2550 meters depth on the East Pacific Rise crest near 9° 36'N Latitude. The different shapes and surfaces of the lava are formed when the lava erupts and cools quickly as it hits the cold, near freezing sea water. Some of the shapes at the end of the video look like folded curtains!
