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.
