A flair for finding gas bubble flares

NIWA marine geologist Arne Pallentin is looking for telltale gas bubble 'flares"—using a multibeam echosounder—that indicate new volcanic activity in the Calypso Vent Field. The research adds to a series of previous surveys that show how volcanic activity is changing over time in the surrounding Bay of Plenty area.
