Details for: Ruby
Ruby submarine volcano in the southern Mariana arc is seen in this bathymetric view looking from the NW with two times vertical exaggeration. Depths in this image range from 184 to 2955 meters. Ruby, a submarine volcano that rises to within 230 m of the sea surface NW of Saipan, was detected in eruption in 1966 by sonar signals. In 1995 submarine explosions were heard, accompanied by a fish kill, sulfurous odors, water bubbling, and the detection of volcanic tremor.
