Background:

The submarine Brothers volcano, located NE of the Healy submarine volcano, contains an oval-shaped summit caldera 3-3.5 km wide. The volcano is elongated in a NW-SE direction, and the high point of the dominantly dacitic volcano lies on the NW caldera rim at about 1350 m below the sea surface. The caldera floor is at about 1850 m depth, and a post-caldera lava dome was constructed on the southern caldera floor and partially merges with the southern caldera wall. Brothers volcano displays major submarine hydrothermal activity, including a large field of "black smoker" vents on the NW caldera wall and vents on the post-caldera dome.
