Notes on Vent Field Description:
longitude, latitude approximate; located at Full Gale Volcano; Pedersen et al. (2009): "Using a remotely operated vehicle (ROV), we located two hydrothermal fields at the flat summit of the volcano, but no hydrothermal activity was detected. One of the fields is located in a depression on a small volcanic ridge, and is composed of approximately 30 fossil chimneys, some of which have tumbled."
