Axial Science Workshop Talks

 Axial Seamount

As part of the planning process for the NSF-funded Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Regional Scale Nodes (RSN) cabled observatory network at Axial Seamount, a science workshop was held in Seattle, Washington, October 5-7, 2011. A complete list of talks, many with PPT files, is posted here.  A handful of the talks were re-enacted and videotaped at a later date at the University of Washington; others were re-created with audio annotation of the speaker's PPT presentation. These re-enacted versions of the talks are posted as they become available.
