Instruments installed in Axial Caldera and at the base of Axial as part of the OOI Cabled Array include those that measure physical, biological, chemical, and geological parameters to better understand the complex processes that operate in the the Axial environment. These include earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, currents, and hydrothermal flow with linkages to biological communities.
