    The Juan de Fuca Ridge south of the Cobb Offset is bi- sected by an axial seamount at the intersection of the Cobb-Eickleburg Seamount chain and the ridge [16]. Segments 1 through 3 and 6 through 4 shift progressively westward toward the axial seamount in Cited by: Variable crustal structure along the Juan de Fuca Ridge: Influence of on-axis hot spots and absolute plate motions Suzanne M.

    Submersible observations on Axial Seamount on the Juan de Fuca ridge in the northeast Pacific revealed dense communities of organisms (up to individuals per m 2) on the vertical walls of a caldera where current speeds were measured at 25 cm/sec (Tunnicliffe et al., ). Suspension feeder abundance is inversely correlated with soft. Names in Bold are CIMRS authors FY Applegate, T.

    DESCRIPTION: This research will continue measurements of long term volcanic inflation of the seafloor at Axial Seamount on the Juan de Fuca Ridge using an innovative new pressure sensor/benchmarking method. Present data show Axial Volcano has been re-inflating since its eruption. The center of Axial caldera has been uplifted m since then.   van Heeswijk M () Shallow crustal structure of the caldera of Axial Seamount, Juan de Fuca Ridge.

No systematic variation in velocity structure along the length of the caldera could be resolved. Shallow water (about m), smooth bathymetry and the absence of sediments allowed direct measurement of the surface velocities of the caldera by: 9.

This complex volcanic edifice is located at the intersection of the Cobb Hotspot and the Juan Juan de Fuca ridge book Fuca Ridge (46°N, °W), in the Northeast Pacific Ocean.

Using sea surface, seafloor, and near seafloor gravity surveys, I determine an average density of Author: Lisa A. Gilbert. Shallow crustal structure of the caldera of Axial Seamount, Juan de Fuca ridge.

profiles\ud show that the seismic velocities of the upper km of the crust are low and similar to Mid-Atlantic Ridge upper crustal velocities. The low velocities and failure to observe shear waves are thought due to a combination of a thick section of.

Continuous evolution of oceanic crustal structure following an eruption at Axial Seamount, Juan de Fuca Ridge.

Axial Seamount is a large, volcanically active seamount located in the eastern Pacific on the central Juan de Fuca (JDF) ridge at 46°N, ′W. Sea surface magnetic anomaly data show that Axial lies completely within crust formed during the Brunhes normal polarity by: 1 Introduction.

Axial Seamount Hydrothermal Emission Study (ASHES) is an active hydrothermal vent field located near the southwestern caldera wall of Axial Seamount [e.g., Hammond, ; Hammond and Delaney, ; Desonie and Duncan, ; Embley et al., ], ~ km from the Oregon coast at the intersection of the Juan de Fuca Ridge and the Cobb‐Eickelberg Seamount Cited by: 3.

An eruption on Axial Volcano (∼ m depth), a seamount on the Juan de Fuca Ridge (JdFR) in the northeast Pacific Ocean, occurred in January.

The early development and growth of oceanic volcanoes that eventually grow to become ocean islands are poorly known. In Hawai‘i, the submarine Lō‘ihi Seamount provides the opportunity to determine the structure and growth of such a nascent oceanic island. High-resolution bathymetric data were collected using AUV Sentry at the summit and at two hydrothermal vent fields on Cited by: 4.

Overview of the Juan de Fuca (JdF) Plate off the coast of WA-OR with an inset of Axial Seamount, a hot spot-influenced volcano perched on the JdF spreading center, a portion of the mid-ocean ridge network.

Axial Caldera, at the summit of the volcano, is 3 x 7 km and lies along the trace of the spreading center. Axial Seamount (also Coaxial Seamount or Axial Volcano) is a seamount and submarine volcano located on the Juan de Fuca Ridge, approximately km ( mi) west of Cannon Beach, ng 1, m (3, ft) high, Axial Seamount is the youngest volcano and current eruptive center of the Cobb–Eickelberg Seamount d at the center of both Coordinates: 46°04′N °00′W /.

Seismic imaging reveals a shallow-crustal magma chamber beneath the source site of the eruption on Coaxial segment, Juan de Fuca Ridge. The magma chamber is at least 6 km(3) in volume and contains at least km(3) of melt, enough to supply at least several eruptions of a size equal to the one in SHALLOW CRUSTAL STRUCTURE OF THE CALDERA OF AXIAL SEAMOUNT, JUAN DE FUCA RIDGE INTRODUCTION In July of a seismic refraction experiment was carried out on board the Surveyor, to obtain a velocity profile for the shallow crust of the caldera of Axial Seamount.

In addition, the caldera was surveyed with SEABEAM, sidescan sonar and bottom. Structure, Seismicity, and Accretionary Processes at the Hot Spot-Influenced Axial Seamount on the Juan de Fuca Ridge Article (PDF Available) in Journal of.

The location of the Cobb hotspot that gives rise to these seamounts is 46° N ° W. Axial Seamount rises m above the mean level of the central Juan de Fuca Ridge crest about km west of Cannon Beach, Oregon to within about m of the sea surface.

The volcano is the most magmatically robust and seismically active site on the Juan de Fuca Ridge between the Blanco Fracture Zone and the Cobb offset.

Axial volcano is formed by excess magmatism associated with mantle melting at the Cobb hotspot and the Juan de Fuca ridge.
