Einsteins Grotto

Einsteins Grotto

Einstein's Grotto, located at the summit of Southern Hydrate Ridge, is a main target site for installation of cabled chemical and biological sensors in 2014. The area hosts extensive white bacterial mats and was a site of vigorous venting of large methane bubbles. This image was taken in 2011, showing water sampling bottles on the arm of the Canadian robotic vehicle ROPOS.
