Perspective view of the northern and central portions of the ABE hydrothermal vent field (25 cm resolution). Observed areas of hydrothermal activity (both focused and diffuse flow) are outlined with white boxes and are located on and adjacent to a NE–SW trending fault with a throw of 10–20 m. Individual vent edifices are identifiable in this view, and finger-like flows are evident within the white box at the northeastern extent of the view.
