Axial Seamount Hydrothermal Vent Time-Lapse Videos

Undergraduate students at Rutgers University have used still frames extracted from the HD Video camera (CAMHD) to compile time-lapse videos of the hydrothermal vent, under the direction of the OOI Data Team. There are 7 biological scenes of interest, captured during the pan/zoom routine of each video. The students are helping produce metadata by time-stamping each scene of interest in every video file on the archive. The students then ran code provided by the OOI Data Team to produce time-lapse videos and watch the vent change over time at each of the scenes of interest. More videos and additional post-processing techniques will be added over time, using open-access tools.
