A team of researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and CICESE will venture to the coastal waters of Baja California to explore the age, origin, chemistry, and volcanology of eruptive rift zones. Armed with a remotely operated vehicle, the scientists will photograph and sample the products of submarine volcanism. If they’re successful, this nine-day journey will provide the first direct look scientists have had at a relatively unexplored region of potentially great tectonic significance.
