But when we weren't looking, the Chinese, who were on 33-day scientific research in the area, applied and succeeded in naming five underwater features within the Philippine Rise - Jinghao Seamount
, both located some 70 nautical miles east of Cagayan; Haidonquing Seamount
further east at 190 nautical miles; Cuiqiao Hill and Jujiu Seamount
, both form the central peaks of the Philippine Rise undersea geological province itself.
The Chinese names are, namely: Jinghao Seamount
; Tianbao Seamount
; Haidonquing Seamount
; Cuiqiao Hill; and Jujiu Seamount
The current discussion about the seamount
naming has, of course, turned a little ridiculous with some frivolous or serious-depending on your point of view-about a name change for the Chinese word siomai.
The woman was wrestled to the ground by a man in a hood on Friday night as she walked home on a path between Merrion Wood and Seamount

There will always be the unexpected when you go into the deep ocean," said Conservation International's Greg Stone, the seamount

At the Hannibal Bank Seamount
, an 1,180-foot-high undersea mountain off Pananas Pacific, a 2015 expedition led by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) marine ecologist Jesus Pineda found mesmerizing swarms of red crabs on the seafloor--where the water has almost no oxygen.
These islands are the visible peaks of a chain of seamounts
and volcanoes known as the Easter-Salas y Gomez Seamount
The woman, believed to be in her 50s, is understood to have fallen from a window of Seamount
Court in Aberdeen's Gallowgate at about 7.
This process brings cooler nutrient rich water from deeper areas towards the surface and the photosynthetic zone, producing an area of high primary and secondary productivity around the seamount
compared to the surrounding area (Boehlert & Genin, 1987; Genin, Haury& Greenblatt, 1988; Rogers, 1994; Koslow, 1997; Koslow, Gowlett-Holmes, Lowry, O'Hara, Poore & Williams, 2001; White, Bashmachnikov, Aristegui & Martins, 2007).
Washington, June 11 ( ANI ): A team of scientists known for correctly forecasting the 2011 eruption of Axial Seamount
years in advance, now insist that the undersea volcano located some 250 miles off the Oregon coast gave off clear signals hours before its impending eruption.
Deep-sea bottom fisheries, including bottom trawling, can damage seamount
habitats and negatively impact fish stocks," Lundin said.
is also recognised as a priority area for inclusion in the list of specially protected areas of Mediterranean importance (SPAMI) under the Barcelona Convention.
