WHOI Webinar: Hydrothermal Vents! Exploring Hot Springs on the Deep Seafloor

Event Date: 
February 22, 2023

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) invites you to an episode of Ocean Encounters: Hydrothermal Vents! Exploring hot springs on the deep seafloor

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.
