Dive 14: The Big Picture

Dive 14 took place at Liszt Seamount between the depth range of about 2,500 to 2,200 meters (8,200 to 7,220 feet). Rock samples collected during the dive will help us to better understand the geologic origin of the seamount and the source for the structural fractures and lava flow evidence observed.
