Latest Hydrothermal vents Stories
Max Planck researchers discover hydrogen-powered symbiotic bacteria in deep-sea hydrothermal vent mussels.
An FEI Quanta SEM electron microscope revealed a hydrothermal worm that seems monstrous when zoomed in 525 times.
Pyrite nanoparticles from hydrothermal vents provide a rich source of iron for deep sea life, according to new research published in the current issue of the journal Nature Geoscience.
Scientists aboard the Royal Research Ship James Cook have discovered a new set of deep-sea volcanic vents in the chilly waters of the Southern Ocean.
Hydrothermal vents may contribute more to the thermal budget of the oceans than previously assumed.
The first expedition to search for deep-sea hydrothermal vents along the Mid-Cayman Rise has turned up three distinct types of hydrothermal venting, reports an interdisciplinary team led by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in this week's Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
An expedition partially funded by NASA, part of a program to search extreme environments for geological, biological and chemical clues to the origins and evolution of life, has discovered the deepest known hydrothermal vent in the world, nearly 5,000 meters (16,400 feet) below the surface of the western Caribbean Sea.
Working in a rare, "natural seafloor laboratory" of hydrothermal vents that had just been rocked by a volcanic eruption, scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and other institutions have discovered what they believe is an undersea superhighway carrying tiny life forms unprecedented distances to inhabit the post-eruption site.
A British scientific expedition has discovered the world's deepest undersea volcanic vents, known as 'black smokers', 5000 meters deep in the Cayman Trough in the Caribbean.
Scientists at Columbiaâ€™s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory have found evidence of hydrothermal vents on the seafloor near Antarctica, formerly a blank spot on the map for researchers wanting to learn more about seafloor formation and the bizarre life forms drawn to these extreme environments.
