Three-dimensional image of the summit of Ahyi submarine volcano with the midwater data shown rising from the new crater created by the April 2014 eruption. The summit crater is ~100 meters deep. Other CO2 bubbles can be seen rising from most of the summit, which leads one to believe that there is more than one source of venting. This image shows an area 850 meters across with depths ranging from 78 meters (red) to 400 meters (blue). No vertical exaggeration.
