Are these the sensors that the Navy has to scrub sensitive signals from before the data gets passed on to scientists?
Is there anything to which those low frequency signals can be attributed?

What's your point? Or do you have one?
The sea floor split open on April 24, 2015, but scientists had seen it coming for months.
Drawing on data from more than a dozen instruments arrayed around the underwater volcano known as Axial Seamount, they documented telltale tremors that shook its slopes. They watched the caldera at the top of the volcano swell like a balloon filling with air, building up pressure until it finally burst. They couldn't see much of the eruption that happened next — the water was too cloudy with debris — but they know that it involved plumes of super hot water and bubbles of gas and steam that popped with the explosive force of a mortar round. By the time the eruption ended a month later, nearly 88 billion gallons of molten rock had flooded ocean bottom.
