What are some hazards related to submarine volcanism?

    Not much is known about submarine volcanic activity. However, we do know that volcanoes are common on certain parts of the ocean floor. The ones located in shallower waters tend to shoot out ash and debris which accumulates by the volcano itself and is distributed through the air as well. In terms of hazards, there is the risk posed by increased ash and debris in the air. But if the volcano is far off shore then that may not be as much of an issue unless there is significant wind activity. Another potential hazard is the risk of tsunami waves. The pressure buildup and explosion from the volcanic activity often results in tsunami activity.
