Characterising a submarine volcano using low cost sensing equipment

Kavachi submarine volcano is located in the Solomon Islands. It is 20 nm offshore in 2000 m of water and is highly active, representing a challenging system to characterise. Current methodology to access these systems is prohibitively expensive for most research group and is generally limited to major expeditions. This talk will detail the use of low cost sensing systems to characterise the topography and vent physiochemical environment as well associated biology.
