Yesterday, the JOIDES Resolution set sail from Auckland, New Zealand into the Pacific Ocean to drill on the seamounts of the Louisville Seamount trail. This may cause you to ask a lot of questions, one of which probably is: what in the world is a seamount?

Right now the JOIDES Resolution is drilling into a mountain that is over 4000 meters (13,000 feet) tall. The mountain is actually underneath me in the photo, but can you tell it is there just by looking at the ocean?
