  • A reflection observed on multi-channel seismic profiles along and across the East Pacific Rise between 8°50′ N and 13°30′ N is interpreted to arise from the top of a crustal magma chamber located 1.2–2.4 km below the sea floor. The magma chamber is quite narrow (<4 – 6 km wide), but can be traced as a nearly continuous feature for tens of kilometres along the rise axis.
