NeMO is a seafloor observatory
at an active underwater volcano, Axial Seamount. A volcanic eruption occured
at Axial in January 1998, destroying some hydrothermal vent sites and
creating new ones. Since then NeMO scientists have been assessing the
impact of the eruption and documenting the on-going changes in Axial's
summit caldera. Through the site, you can access fly-through movies, virtual-reality
panoramas, and video clips from 6 sites located in Axial's summit caldera.
Also available are new curriculum materials based on NeMO research.
