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.
