The Campi Flegrei caldera cluster is the largest volcanic feature along the Bay of Naples, which is also home to the more famous Vesuvius. The most obvious manifestation of the magma under the surface at the Campi Flegrei is the La Solfatara, a region of intense hydrothermal activity. Credit: NASA Earth Observatory

In spring 2012, the muddy seafloor at Station M was literally covered with the silvery bodies of dead salps (gelatinous midwater animals that feed on microscopic algae). This debris provided food for seafloor animals such as sea cucumbers. Credit: Image © 2012 MBARI

Remotely operated undewater sub Jason-II uses a sensor to measure temperature while exploring an underwater outcrop of rocks, much as it will during December’s expedition. These outcrops are often oases for life on the bottom of the ocean, as seen by the abundance of brittle stars, sponges, and other animals coating the rocks.

With remote-sensing satellites, scientists have found the coldest places on Earth, just off a ridge in the East Antarctic Plateau. The coldest of the cold temperatures dropped to minus 135.8 F (minus 93.2 C) -- several degrees colder than the previous record. Image Credit: Ted Scambos, National Snow and Ice Data Center
