Realtime data from the OOI BPR/Tilt instruments at Axial

 

The maps below show the locations of four Bottom Pressure/Tilt (BOTPT) instruments at Axial Seamount, part of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Cabled Array seafloor observatory, operated by the University of Washington. Click on the links below to see plots of near-real-time data (updated every 15 minutes) from the individual BOTPT instruments. The BOTPT instruments were built by NOAA's Pacific Marine Environmental Lab and Oregon State University. Follow our attempts to forecast the next eruption -> HERE. Information on our previous expeditions to Axial Seamount is available -> HERE.

NEW: A fourth BPR/Tilt instrument was deployed at the ASHES Vent Field in mid-August 2017 (see new link below).
