      Volcanic activity of the midatlantic ridge persists as the ridge
      dives under the arctic ice.

      The products of the volcanos, however, change from ash, steam
      and CO2 to massive sulfides and hydrothermal springs as the
      ridge descends below ~1 km.
      This hydrothermal activity has been blamed, by some people,
      for the melting of arctic ice.
