Electrical Impedance Tomography of a Seafloor Volcano
Thanks to a successful UC ship-time proposal, we were able
to carry out an exciting student cruise to make
an electrical conductivity map of the insides of
a seafloor volcano. This work is providing the
material for David Myer's Ph.D. thesis.
The R.V. Roger Revelle cruise embarked Honolulu on the 1st
July, getting off in Hilo 5th July.
