Description:

The ocean floor around the Lost City is full of deep cracks that go all the way down into a lower layer of the Earth called the mantle. Giora Proskurowski at the University of Washington and his fellow researchers looked carefully at some of the waters seeping out of these cracks and found lots of hydrocarbons there. These hydrocarbons don't look like the ones that come from living things, though.
