Axial Seamount, situated off Oregon’s coast, is one of the most active, and also one of the most studied submarine volcanoes on the planet.

This summer scientists set sail on a perilous expedition to create the first internal 3D images of the underwater volcano deep in the Pacific Ocean and predicted its next eruption will happen within the next 5 years.
