Underwater Volcanic Eruption Detected in Progress

27 Nov 06 - Scientists made their first discovery of a volcanic
in progress 1.5 miles below the surface of the Pacific Ocean at
a site where earthquake had increased.

The eruption, in April, was reported recently in an online paper
published by the journal Science. Geologist Maya Tolstoy of the
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, led the work.

Rocks collected from the site were glassy and iridescent, indicating
very recent cooling of hot magma by contact with cold seawater.
