buried instrument

A chain still attached to an ocean-bottom hydrophone (OBH) comes directly out of the seafloor at Axial Seamount where a lava flow erupted in 2011 has buried the instrument to a depth of about 1.5 meters (5 feet). The front of the Jason remotely operated vehicle is in the lower right and its manipulator arms are visible in the upper left and right.
