Chimney Structure, Marker 72

This huge chimney structure (~15 meters tall - a small portion of which is shown in this image) is venting fluid at 312 degrees C, the highest temperature to date in the Magic Mountain area. Marker 72 was placed by ROPOS to make it easier to find on subsequent visits. Image courtesy of Submarine Ring of Fire 2002, NOAA/OER.
