Secondary Junction Box on Seafloor

A medium power Junction Box (MJ01A), was deployed on July 10 near Primary Node 3B at the base of Axial Seamount. These junction boxes, when fully deployed next summer and connected to the Primary Nodes, will provide power and communication to instruments at specific monitoring sites such as the ASHES and International Vent fields, and at geophysical monitoring sites in the caldera.
