Underwater volcano found off Antarctic coast  

 

21 May 04 - The National Science Foundation announced yesterday that a previously unknown underwater volcano has been discovered in an area known
as the Antarctic Sound at the northernmost tip of Antarctica.

Dredges on the research vessel Lawrence M. Gould  “recovered abundant fresh basalt.” Although large areas of the volcano were colonized by submarine life, none was found around the volcano itself, indicating that lava had flowed fairly recently. Temperature probes showed signs of geothermal heating of seawater. http://www.nsf.gov/home/news.html#story1
