Team Explores Undersea Volcano

Just 60 miles north of Guam, an undersea volcano is erupting. NW Rota-1 is located in the Marianas Volanic Arc, one of the most active volcanic chains on the planet. A team of scientists and engineers have been gathering data on NW Rota-1 for the past two weeks. NW Rota-1 has been erupting almost continuously for five years and has grown 130 feet in height since scientists visited in 2006. "There have been no reports that I am aware of that this eruption has had any effect on Rota, Guam or any of the surrounding islands."
