Description:

On this 2003 expedition, scientists from several institutions explored a hydrothermal field on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, studying limestone formations and new life forms, creating maps of this unique location. Overviews include: research objectives, deep sea hot spring environments, seafloor mapping, marine geology, vent chemistry, instrumentation and vessel technology. Shipboard life communicated through researcher logs, daily questions from participating classrooms with answers by expedition scientists. Includes: photos, diagrams, contour maps.
