Abstract or Summary
  • We present the geomorphology of the Eastern Samoa Volcanic Province, covering 28,446 km², and depths ranging from ~50-4000 m. A new compilation of available multibeam data reveals 51 previously undocumented seamounts, and delineates major submarine rift zones, eruptive centers, and volcanic plateaus. Moving from a regional to local scale, and with regard to specific coral reef habitats, we report the results of three Pisces V submersible dives to the submerged flanks of Tutuila, with overall objectives of species identification of deepwater fish and invertebrates (32 species of invertebrates and 91 species of fish identified, 9 new records), determining the base of extensive live bottom (i.e., coral cover of 20% and greater) as well as relations to any prior benthic terrain classifications at 100 m and deeper.
