Searching for undersea volcanic eruptions
The RV Roger Ravelle loaded in Suva, Fiji on September 8 with a contingent visiting the ship including the US Ambassador, students, and members of the press. They were given a tour of the ship and JISAO's Joe Resing, chief scientist on the cruise, did a short interview with the Fiji Sun and Fiji Times.
Dr. Resing spent time with the ambassador discussing the issue of deep sea mining which is of acute interest to the island nations of the South Pacific. He indicated to her that the program is very interested in this issue with regards to Ocean Stewardship, including characterizing existing ecosystems and maintaining bio-resources and ecosystems within the inner ocean, especially in submarine volcanic habitats.
In 2011, Dr. Resing's research on undersea volcanoes made the cover of Nature Geoscience. The publication is titled "Active submarine eruption of boninite in the northeastern Lau Basin."
