Details for: NW Rota-1
An explosive eruption plume rises from a submarine vent on NW-Rota 1 volcano on April 27, 2006. This submarine volcano was first detected during a 2003 NOAA bathymetric survey of the Mariana Island arc. The basaltic to basaltic-andesite seamount rises to within 517 m of the sea surface SW of Esmeralda Bank. During subsequent visits in 2005, 2006, and 2008, the volcano was seen to be in eruption.
