An Eruption of Life! OMZ, Are You Serious?

Exploring the deeper reaches of the Revillagigedo Archipelago offered us a chance to explore underwater volcanoes that had recently erupted--within the last 70 years! Moving ROV Hercules and ROV Argus up through the Oxygen Minimum Zone (OMZ), ranging from 900-700m depth, we gained an amazing look into the variety of different organisms scattered above, below, and within this extreme environment. Here are some of our favorites!
