Another underwater volcano has been discovered by scientists in Southeast Alaska waters.
The only difference is that this one is active and spewing methane almost to the surface.
About two years ago, geologists discovered a dormant underwater volcano, about 150 feet below the surface, which hadn’t erupted for about 10,000 years.
So is this new active submerged volcano responsible for some recent earthquakes?
The plume is made up of methane gas and is being released by a volcanic vent about 3,000 feet below. The gas stretches up about two-thirds of the way to the ocean’s surface.
As scientists worked over the vent, right over the vent and are still around to tell about it, there is no problems for mariners.
The new active underwater volcano is not alone but surrounding volcanoes are all extinct.
