Detailed Description

High-resolution bathymetric map of Yellowstone Lake (left) showing the location of hydrothermal vents (black dots) on the lake floor. Zoomed area at right is an ultra-high-resolution (25 cm) bathymetric map of an area known as "Deep Hole," which is a site of special focus for the HD-YLAKE project. The data for Deep Hole were collected by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's autonomous underwater vehicle REMUS in July 2016.
