    Each image is on the order of 2 meters wide. The images are oriented diagonally from top-left to-bottom right, so you can kind of get an idea of how big the pillow lavas are. Just guessing, I'd say they're on the order of 50 cm or so across. The vehicle which took these images, called CAMPER (for Camera Sampler) was being towed very close to the sea floor from the Swedish icebreaker Oden, at about 85 degrees north latitude, 85 degrees east longitude -- I'm not sure of a more exact location for this particular mosaic, but it's in that region of the Gakkel Ridge. The depth was somewhere between 3800 and 4100 meters, again I'd have to do some digging to find out more precisely.

    What is the size of the objects we see? What depth? I would like to know more about this.
