Hotbed of Volcanic Activity Found Beneath Arctic Ocean
The discovery of such a thin crust in conjunction with abundant volcanic activity and hydrothermal vents is unusual, added Jokat. He said the data suggests that crustal thickness is not only a function of spreading rates but also depends on the three-dimensional character of ridge magmatism.

Through reading this report, I realized how fun and interesting it would be to be a geologist as one could put one's knowledge into use and also, thru which one can also learn fresh things that one has never heard of before from the researches one and co-workers have done. As a reader, I myself have also been deeply impressed by the wonderful natural happenings around us. The report taught me the unpredictable changes nature preserves, I think it is quite important for us to gain some knowledge of the world we are living in.
