Listen to a NOAA podcast on the Submarine Ring of Fire 2006 (SRoF'06) expedition that will take place on the Mariana arc. This will be the third Ocean Exploration expedition to the Marianas. The podcast shows a few of the images from SRoF'04. The four previous Submarine Ring of Fire expeditions were to Kermadec arc (2005), Mariana arc (2004 & 2003) and the Explorer ridge (2002). The dashed line is the crest of the Mid-ocean ridge system and solid lines show plate boundaries defined by island arcs and trenches.
