The NZASRoF’07 Kermadec Arc expedition departs from Auckland Harbor, heading up the Ngatoro Rift Basins and on to Brothers Volcano. The bathymetry flythrough begins over the North Island of New Zealand, then heads northeast over the Ngatoro Rift Basins, turns east and then north flying over the Kermadec Arc submarine volcanoes. The flight path continues north to Brothers caldera, turns around and looks south over the arc and backarc with New Zealand in the background. The bathymetry data consist of multibeam data (GNS) overlaid on satellite altimetry (Smith and Sandwell), and are exaggerated 2.5 times. Fly-through movie courtesy of the NOAA Vents Program.
