The “Featured Photo” in the UH News Digest for November 13 showed Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences students at work during the recent research cruise to Tamu Massif, the world’s largest single volcano.
Students Andrew Pineda and Sriharsha Thoram (from front) monitored geophysical equipment in the science control room of the R/V Falkor with Texas A&M University student Yanming Huang. Pineda and Thoram are two of the seven UH Earth and Atmospheric Sciences students who participated in the research cruise with the goal of understanding how the world’s largest single volcano was formed.
The project was led by geophysics professor William Sager.
