    Seamounts are very effectively studied by deep-sea photography. Each photograph can be considered as a sample point when used in connection with bathymetric surveys, dredge samples, and cores, thus making it possible to delineate and map geologic and biologic zones on a seamount. Seamounts transcend through a great depth range and are characterized by minimal sedimentation which results in exciting and photogenic differences of environment over a short distance, as typified by our studies of Great Meteor and the New England Seamounts.
