Hydrothermal Vents: Exploring Hot Springs on the Deep Sea Floor

Wed, February 22, 2023 • 6:30pm - 7:30pm (1h) • Virtual

Rika Anderson will be part of a panel for this online discussion of hydrothermal vents. Like geysers and hot springs on land, hydrothermal vents form in volcanic regions on the ocean bottom, gushing hot, mineral-rich fluids from beneath the seafloor. Join us to hear what scientists have learned about vents and the surprising organisms that thrive there—and what they can teach us about the origins of life on Earth. This is part of Ocean Encounters Virtual Series from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
