3-dimensional image of the Central Volcano area in the Galapagos Rift valley between Longitudes 97° 34’W (top of image) and 97° 38’W (bottom of image). This image shows the results of Dan Scheirer’s data processing to fill in gaps between the DSL-120 bathymetry swaths seen in the previous slide. The yellow arrow shows the location of the main part of the Central Volcano. We have dredged glassy lava from this feature. Tomorrow, we will send Argo II down to this site to collect video and photographic data of the volcanic terrain. Depth bar at the bottom is in meters.
