Notes on Vent Field Description:
depth estimated from GeoMapApp; Son et al. (2014): "Although no venting was found within the rift valley along the segment 7, one clear plume signal accompanied by an ORP anomaly was detected on the flank site closest to the discontinuity.", "Segment 7 hosts only one site, on the western flank of the axial valley."
