Ring of Fire 2006 Expedition. Acidic liquid carbon dioxide bubbles rise out of the seafloor at NW Eifuku volcano. To avoid destroying camera lenses and plastic fittings on Jason, the vehicle kept a safe distance from the rising CO2 bubbles. The inset at the upper right shows a few of the liquid CO2 bubbles photographed from a safe distance.
