The Tow Cam vent field in the Northern Eastern Lau Spreading Center consists of two areas of hydrothermal activity (identified with white boxes) adjacent to a fault with throw of nearly 20 m. These hydrothermal vent areas are directly connected by a small fault (throw ~ 1 m). The bumpy texture evident in this perspective view is due to the presence of pillow and lobate lavas.
