Perspective view of the ultra-high resolution bathymetry (25 cm grid) at the Vai Lili vent field, located on the Valu Fa Ridge. Numerous cratered domes are evident in the southern extent of the survey area, and a distinct flow is evident emanating toward the N–NW from the southernmost cratered dome. Observed areas of hydrothermal activity (both focused and diffuse flow) are outlined with white boxes.
