地球上最大的火山!我会喝点!

Tamu3d_custom-F47011008CAF65F28D9D03157A541E154007BA39-S40-C85 上周的科学家发现了地球上最大的火山,在太阳系中最大的火山。火山名为Tamu Massif,位于日本以东990英里(1600公里)。 Tamu Massif的基础发生了一只海底4英里(6.4公里),深度下降至1.2英里(1.98公里)。这使得Tamu Massif高约2.73英里(4.4公里)。圆顶延伸超过100,000平方英里(260,000平方公里)。相比之下,地球上最大火山的当前记录持有人是夏威夷的Mauna Loa,面积为1900平方英里(5000平方公里)。这一尺寸将Tamu Massif在太阳系中最大的火山大小的一半,奥林巴斯Mons在火星上。

等等,我们星球上最大的火山是如何未被发现的?首先,Tamu Massif的峰会位于海洋表面下方。其次,目前尚不清楚Tamu Massif的许多熔岩流量是否代表了几个单独的流量或单一来源的熔岩的各个火山。

如NPR所引用

火山是一个较大的水下特征的一部分,被称为Shatsky崛起,但只有在过去几年中只有Sager’S团队能够确定它’s a single volcano. “我们知道这是一座大山,某种火山山,但海洋平原是非常大的特征,隐藏在海底下方’很难研究他们,” Sager says.

“主要是我们能够在几年前做的成像,但没有样本提供的实地真理,我们钻出这件事,我们会’t几乎是令人兴奋的结果,” he tells NPR.

Sager在发现之前说,Tamu Massif是一座火山,科学家们预计“这个大的东西必须由大量的火山组成,两个,三,四十四,你只是唐’t know.”

那么这个名字在哪里起源?研究人员是Aggies(德克萨斯州&M University或Tamu短暂)。一个质量块是指一组由一部分成壳形成的山脉形成。

那么我们怎知最大的火山在地球上发现了什么?庆祝饮料!

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://jiaxiangsuji.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.
