Footage captured on June 29th during the first ROV dive of INDEX 2010 down to Kawio Barat volcano. The video shows some of the stunning marine life encountered during the dive. A field of clams (possibly chemosynthetic?) is imaged shortly before the ROV came across a hydrothermal vent plume. Video courtesy of NOAA Okeanos Explorer Program, INDEX-SATAL 2010.
