Weird Worms Live Near Pacific Ocean’s Deepest High-Temp Vent | National Geographic
Scientists have discovered the deepest high-temperature hydrothermal vent in the Pacific Ocean, located in the Gulf of California's Pescadero Basin. It sits nearly 12,500 feet (3,800 meters) below the surface. Experts think the high temperatures may cook organic material in the overlying mud into petroleum-like products. Samples of the chimney stacks have the stench of diesel fuel, but creatures like the tubeworms shown in this footage are undeterred. They cling to rocks near carbonate chimneys that emerge from a flat, muddy seafloor. The footage was captured using a remotely operated vehicle. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Hydrothermal vents in the deep sea
In many areas of high volcanic activity, water seeps into the sub-surface where it is intensely heated and then finds its way to the surface again. Examples on the land include hot springs in therapeutic spas, and special types like geysers and fumaroles. In the ocean, this circulation occurs most commonly at the mid-ocean ridge, the world's longest mountain chain. Here, far below the depth of sunlight penetration, hydrothermal vents at over 400°C with their dissolved compounds provide the basis for complex ecosystems.

Evolution Deep Sea Vents and Life's Origins
http://www.myspace.com/acorvettes Bacteria found deep in the ocean in the volcanic regions of mid-ocean ridges suggest a possible scenario for the beginning of life on earth. Ocean water seeps into cracks created by sea-floor spreading at the mid-ocean ridges and is heated by magma from inside the earth. Water in these hydrothermal vents reaches temperatures of 375 degrees C and higher and is rich in dissolved minerals. The hot water rises from the vents in geysers and meets cold ocean water, causing minerals to precipitate out of solution as the water cools. In some places compounds of iron and sulfides form "chimneys" on top of the vents. Such an extreme environment seemed unlikely to support life given the conditions of temperature, pressure, and absence of light for photosynthesis.

Hydrothermal chimneys at Alarcón Rise
The hydrothermal chimneys at Alarcón Rise are spectacular geologic formations 2,300 meters below the surface of the Gulf of California. The bizarre communities of animals that live on and around the vents have evolved to not only withstand, but in fact thrive in the extreme temperature and chemical conditions. This video features some of the unusual geologic features and organisms found at vent sites, including stunning dense clumps of giant tubeworms (Riftia pachyptila). Riftia worms are an example of a species that is specially adapted to the extreme hydrothermal vent ecosystem. They have a symbiotic relationship with chemosynthetic microbes that convert methane and sulfides from the water into energy for the worms. There are also eelpout fish called Thermarces cerberus and crabs, Bythograea thermydron, living on the vent. This type of chimney is known as a black smoker because of the large quantities of iron sulfide pouring out. Due to their unique and fascinating qualities, we still have a lot to learn about hydrothermal vents and their surrounding communities. Studies conducted at MBARI in collaboration with partnering institutions are shedding light on many unanswered questions about these amazing areas.

World's Most Bizarre Waterfalls
From bizarre waterfalls that look like blood in Antartica to an unbelievable underwater waterfall in the Republic of Mauritius! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 8. Bigăr Waterfall Although it doesn't impress by its size or the way its water flows, the thing that separates this waterfall from all the rest is where it's located at and its unusual shape that is said to take the shape of a huge mushroom. It’s an extension of a cliff that is entirely covered by moss. The Bigăr waterfall, that’s found in Romania, happens to lie directly in a spot that’s between the North Pole and the Equator. What also makes this waterfall unique to others is the way that the water scatters as it falls into the river. 7. Baatara Gorge Waterfall Lebanon Falling past three stone bridges that were naturally formed, the Baatara Gorge Waterfall appears to look like something that was specially created for the setting of a mythical world. This spectacular view is only able to be seen during the months of March and April because of the melting snow that causes the waterfall. The drop of the waterfall is measured at being an impressive 225 meters. 6. Underwater Waterfall Alright alright! We can see that this one is technically NOT a waterfall, but it’s too amazing not to include it. It’s located off the coast of the Republic of Mauritius and it happens to be just an optical illusion that only makes it seem like there’s a waterfall in the ocean. This illusion is created by the sand and silt that sink deeper into the ocean. 5. Angel Falls Venezuela Angel Falls has the contrast of being the world’s highest waterfall that is uninterrupted and even though it’s found in an isolated jungle, it still manages to draw a number of tourists to it each year in Venezuela. It’s measured at being 15 times that of Niagara Falls and was flown over by an American aviator name Jimmy Angel in 1993 and that’s where the falls gets its name from. 4. Cameron Falls Cameron Falls happens to be found in Alberta, Canada in Waterton Lake National Park. What’s really interesting about this particular waterfall is that only in the month of June are you able to see the normally clear waters turn into a vibrant pink. This phenomena that’s considered rare occurs during the springtime when the rains stir up a sediment in the lake called argillite. When the light hits this mineral just right, it causes the water to look this pink. This is similar to the same way that light hits the moisture in the air in order to create what we know as a rainbow. 3. Sticky Waterfalls In Thailand It’s pretty common that water that flows down rocks have usually slick and slippery surfaces. However, that’s not the case with the Bua Tong Waterfalls that are found in Thailand. Rather, these falls are known for being “sticky” because of a large amount of limestone located underneath. Another main difference is that there is no algae or slime found in these falls. Did you know that because of the huge amount of limestone that it’s possible for people to walk up the falls? 2. Ruby Falls Ruby Falls, which is located in Chattanooga, Tennessee, happens to be the deepest commercial limestone cave that is found in the entirety of the United States. It’s also the most visited waterfall that is located underground in the whole country with around 400,000 visitors annually. The falls measure at being 145-feet high and was named after Ruby Lambert, who was the wife of the man that discovered the falls. Care not to drink the water! It happens to contain a really high concentration of magnesium, which did you know is a natural laxative? These caves are lighted with special colors to give it a more magical vibe. 1. Blood Falls The Blood Falls are located in Antarctica's McMurdo Dry Valley and are measured at being around 5 stories high. The waterfall happens to pour out from the Taylor Glacier right into Lake Bonney. It's pretty clear that there's no real blood that gives the Blood Falls its name. Instead, there is a five-million-year-old subterranean lake that is trapped underneath the glaciers. When the glaciers that were located on top of the lake started to freeze, the water had become incredibly salty. So salty, in fact, that the water that’s located in the subglacial lake has a salt content that is 3 times higher than the oceans and because of this the water isn’t able to freeze. There happens to be a quarter mile of thick ice that keeps the lake from being in contact with any sunlight whatsoever and has built up a large amount of iron. The reason the water comes out as blood-colored is because the oxygen rusts all the iron once it reaches the surface.

Deep-Sea Skates Incubate Eggs Near Hydrothermal Vents  | Nautilus Live
In June 2015, a team of researchers aboard E/V Nautilus made a surprising discovery while exploring the seafloor northwest of the Galapagos Islands. Large numbers of skate egg cases were observed near hydrothermal vents emitting volcanically-heated fluids. Researchers believe the warmer water helps to incubate and speed development of the embryos--the first time this behavior has been observed in marine animals. The Bathyraja spinosissima, commonly known as Pacific white skate, is a relative of sharks and rays. As one of the deepest living skate species, this species is rarely seen but has been documented from the Galapagos Islands to the Pacific Northwest. The research team from Charles Darwin Research Station, University of Rhode Island, and the Galapagos National Park Directorate collected video surveys and specimens using ROV Hercules, recently publishing their findings in Scientific Reports: https://www.nature.com/articles/doi:10.1038/s41598-018-20046-4 Researchers: Pelayo Salinas-de-León, Brennan Phillips, David Ebert, Mahmood Shivji, Florencia Cerutti-Pereyra, Cassandra Ruck, Charles R.

Scientists Uncover Deepest Vents Under the Caribbean Ocean
Scientists uncover the deepest vents under the Caribbean Ocean. Scientists have found the deepest hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor at nearly 5 thousand meters or about three miles under the surface of the water in the Cayman Trough in the depths of the Caribbean Sea. Water coming out of the vents was measured at over 750 degrees Fahrenheit. A British research ship is conducting the study with funds from the Natural Environment Research Council. Doctor Jon Copley of the National Oceanography Centre, the chief scientist said: "The beauty of working in the deep oceans is that you're always stumbling over things that are completely new. It's teaching us how little we know and for a few minutes it's not about the science, it's about the wonder of the planet, something that's been hidden for so long." An unmanned submersible has retrieved samples of water from the vent and some animals that have evolved to live in the unique environment created by the vents. Among the unique deep sea wildlife is a shrimp that scientists think is blind, with an organ on its back that can tell when its getting too close to the hot water. There have been about 200 hydrothermal vents discovered in oceans around the world.

Naked Science - The Deep
Subscribe to Naked Science - http://goo.gl/wpc2Q1 What would you see if you could drain the ocean? Well if you were patient enough, you’d see a conveyor belt moving. This film tells the story of the moving sea floor, from its formation at the mid-ocean ridges, to its demise in the deep-sea trenches thousands of miles away. We compress a journey that takes 200 million years into an incident packed 50 minutes. We start with the mystery of Hawaii, an island that is sinking, and moving. But why? The first clue came in the Second World War, when a US landing craft commander deduced that the sea floor was moving. To discover why, we dive to the strange underwater world of the ocean ridges where volcanic rock spewing out of the earth creates new sea floor. This is the realm of black smokers, and white chimneys, hydrothermal vents that create their own ecosystem. From here we descend to the flat landscape of the abyssal plain, where the only features are decaying whale carcasses. Even here, the evidence shows that the seabed is moving. Finally, we see strange mud volcanoes thrown up as the sea floor descends into the deepest part of the ocean, and melts back into the mantle of the earth.

Deep-sea creatures at volcanic vent
Smoke-like columns of mineral-rich water rise from a hydrothermal vent—one of ten active volcanic vents recently discovered in the Gulf of California (map), the long, narrow body of water between Baja California and mainland Mexico. The vents are the first to be found in the region despite many years of searching. Scientists had suspected active vents existed in the gulf, due to the region's volcanic activity, but until now they'd been hard to track down. (Watch video: What are hydrothermal vents?) The new "black smokers" were found using sonar-equipped robotic submarines, which were deployed during the last leg of a three-month expedition by California's Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI). The team has been using sonar vehicles to successfully locate new vents in the northeastern Pacific since 2006. (Related: "Major Deep-Sea Smokers Found-'Evolution in Overdrive.'") On the latest excursion, sonar maps of the seafloor revealed the tell-tale structures of vent chimneys, showing the team just where to send its remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

Pescadero Basin: Deepest hydrothermal vents in the Gulf of California
During a recent expedition to the Gulf of California scientists from MBARI discovered a new field of hydrothermal vents, the deepest yet discovered in the Gulf of California. These new hydrothermal vent fields were found over thirty-eight hundred meters below the surface in the Pescadero Basin, located off the east coast of Mexico’s Baja California, about one hundred miles east of La Paz. These hydrothermal vents result from a unique combination of geology and chemistry. Using a remotely operated vehicle, researchers found towering white columns emitting geysers of clear shimmering liquid with temperatures up to 290 degrees Celsius. The superheated water flowing from these vents starts deep underground. As the hot water rises, it flows through and reacts with the surrounding bedrock, becoming saturated with carbonate minerals, which build up over time to form the large chimneys that were observed.

Chamorro Vent Discovery: 2016 Deepwater Exploration of the Marianas
Hydrothermal vents are most commonly found near areas that are volcanically or tectonically active. So when scientists using NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer set out to explore Chamorro Seamount, which had no known historic eruptions, they weren't expecting to find vent communities...but they did. Seen at a depth of ~980 meters (3,215 feet), the hydrothermal vents on the outer southeast slope of the seamount's summit crater were indeed an unexpected, and exciting, discovery. Hydrothermal vents occur when super-heated water comes out of a fissure of Earth's surface. The geothermally heated water inside the chimney can reach temperatures of several hundred degrees Celsius, while the water surrounding the vent is about two degrees Celsius in the deep sea. As soon as the hot fluid comes in contact with ambient sea water, it drastically drops in temperature and hydrothermal mixing occurs. The hot fluids at vents contain minerals such as hydrogen sulfide that provide food for bacteria through a process known as chemosynthesis. Chemosynthetic bacteria are at the heart of deep-sea communities, sustaining life in absolute darkness, where sunlight does not penetrate. The chimney mounds at Chammoro were small (one to two meters high), but a temperature measurement taken at one chimney was as high as 31.14°C. The dominant fauna throughout the dive was stylasterid corals (a type of hydrocoral) and animals known to be found in common association with vents, such as the Alvinoconcha snails and alvinocaridid shrimp seen in the video. Other fauna documented during the dive included unusual amphipods, rare blind (polychelid) lobsters, two species of unidentified demosponges, cutthroat eels and rattails, and a variety of fish swimming near the vents. This was Dive 7 on the third leg of an expedition to investigate and document deepwater environments in and around the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument. The expedition is part of the three-year Campaign to Address the Pacific monument Science, Technology, and Ocean NEeds (CAPSTONE), an effort to explore high-priority unknown areas in the Pacific marine national monuments.

Billowing Chimneys of Endeavour Vent Field | Nautilus Live
During the Wiring the Abyss expedition, the Nautilus team surveyed one of the most hostile environments on our planet--chimneys rising from the seafloor spewing fluid superheated by magma! At the Endeavour hydrothermal vent field, located 2200m deep offshore Vancouver Island, Canada, earth's tectonic plates are spreading apart. In some places, water is being drawn down below the surface and superheated by the magma (to temperatures over 400°C/750°F), and expelled through hydrothermal vents. These vents deposit dissolved minerals which build up to become large chimneys.

China’s submersible collects “chimney vent” in SW Indian Ocean
China’s deep-sea manned submersible Jiaolong is currently on a 120-day expedition in the southwest Indian Ocean. It has collected a perfect “chimney vent”, or hydrothermal sulfide, on the seabed.

Ocean Alive! Hydrothermal Vents
Hydrothermal vents, which are found along mid-ocean ridges are like oases of the sea because they are hotspots for biodiversity in the deep ocean. Here you find super-heated fluids flowing from chimneys creating clouds of underwater "smoke". The effluent from these vents can be extremely toxic to humans, but supports a profusion of life that is specially adapted to this harsh environment. ________________ We hope that you enjoyed the video!

Hydrothermal vents sound
Hydrothermal vents are analogous to hot springs on land. They are usually found in water between 2,000 and 4,000 m deep; however, shallow water vents have been observed off the coast of New Zealand, Greece, Italy, Papua New Guinea, and the Azores archipelago. The vents are formed when cold (2° C; 35.6° F) seawater seeps into the sea floor, picks up heat and minerals, and then rises up and out of the seafloor, back into the ocean. As the vent water bursts into the ocean, its temperature is greater than 350°C (662°F). The hottest and most vigorous of the vents are black smokers, named as such for the black plumes they produce. When the scalding hot fluid they release hits the icy cold seawater, minerals in the fluid precipitate out (form into particles), creating a plume that looks just like dark, billowing smoke. Although it was originally thought that these smoker vents were silent, research has shown that these vents, in fact, generate sound. The vents produce broadband acoustic signals at frequencies of 5-15 Hz with power levels approximately 10-30 dB above the ambient noise level. The vents also produce narrowband tones from 10-250 Hz, at power levels approximately 10-20 dB above the broadband signals. Each vent has a unique acoustic signature and scientists have theorized that this is most likely due to differences in the vent's physical structures

Tomorrow today | Exploring the Deep (5)
Deep sea exploration is viewed by marine scientists as one of the greatest scientific challenges of the future. This gigantic research area is a little known world. A mere one percent of this habitat has been explored to date. In collaboration with the MARUM Research Center in Bremen,Tomorrow Today's five-part series presents a fascinating glimpse into the work of marine researchers. The MARUM scientist Wolfgang Bach researches one of the most remarkable structures in the deep sea. The professor at Bremen University studies the hydrothermal vents called black smokers. Some of these chimney-like hot water springs on the sea bed are formed in the mid-Atlantic,in an area known as the Logatchev Field where tectonic plates are moving apart and a new ocean floor is emerging from below. How the black smokers come into being,and what enables molluscs,shrimp and crabs to exist in their chemically aggressive environment are just two of the questions that Wolfgang Bach wants to answer.

Volcanoes of the Deep (1999)
The deep sea was long considered a barren place, devoid of sunlight and inhospitable to life. Now, scientists are witnessing how deep sea volcanoes can support oases of astounding creatures. These oases hold clues to how life might exist elsewhere in the universe, and to how life itself may have begun on Earth. At the heart of these systems lie "black smoker" chimneys, towering structures which spew acidic and scalding water heated by volcanoes beneath the ocean floor. These seemingly hostile environments are teeming with exotic life. Join NOVA on an expedition which journeys to this remote realm to first capture extraordinary imagery, and then, in an exceptional feat of deep sea engineering, lifts from the depths several of these giant chimneys and the life they harbor. The massive structures now offer scientists an unprecedented chance to reveal the secrets of deep sea volcanoes—how life can thrive in eternal darkness, and even how life itself originated.

"Shocking" News from Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vents
Deep-sea hydrothermal vents represent one of the most extreme areas of Earth's biosphere: extreme heat, pressure, toxicity, darkness. What kinds of organisms have adapted to such an environment and how do they manage to thrive? The efforts to find out have changed the scientific view of the necessary conditions for life. Professor Peter Girguis describes the unexpected and unique biodiversity at the hydrothermal vents. He focuses especially on the microbes in this environment that are able to metabolize using a process called extracellular electron transfer (EET). This remarkable system is not only instructive about extreme adaptations; it has potential practical applications. In addition to his discussion of the adaptations of hydrothermal organisms, Dr. Girguis talks about the challenges of exploring the deep-sea hydrothermal vents, both with manned and robotic submersibles. And he also describes a project that invites the participation of citizen scientists. What is an extremophile?

Deep-sea fish use hydrothermal vents to incubate eggs
An international team of researchers including Charles Fisher, Professor and Distinguished Senior Scholar of Biology at Penn State, discovered eggs of deep-sea skates near hydrothermal vents. The researchers believe the fish are using the volcanic heat emitted from the hydrothermal vents to accelerate the typically years-long incubation time of the eggs.
English/Nat Sulphur chimneys from thermal vents on the deep ocean floor have been brought to the surface by US scientists - allowing detailed study for the first time. The chimneys - and the ocean creatures that live on them - have caused great excitement in recent years. Their ability to live without light in hostile conditions could provide vital clues to the way life might have evolved elsewhere in the Solar System. Scientists have recovered four chimneys, 5 to 7 feet tall, weighing up to 4000 pounds. The specimens resemble tree stumps with streaks of black, gold and white from the minerals marcasite, chalopyrite and anhydrite. Two of the chimneys were still active and filled with sea spiders, small worms and microbes when they were recovered. The expedition members believe they might provide an insight into life on other planets. SOUNDBITE: (English) "If there is life in the Solar System or even beyond - for example the leading candidate appears to be Europa, (a moon of Jupiter) as far as I know - it could very much be like this. The environment, the habitats can be very much like this. So the significance of this is that IF there is life elsewhere in the Solar System this might represent how that life exists." SUPER CAPTION: Dr. Edmond A. Mathez, Curator at American Museum of Natural History The chimneys are formed along volcanically active midocean ridges where new ocean crust is created. It's one of the most extreme environments where life exists. Even though scientists have previously recovered samples from the chimneys, the findings from this expedition are different. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We have never recovered an active sulphide chimney and its important that the chimney be active. Because those of the objects that have both a microbial community living within them and also a community living on the outside of them - a community consisting of tubeworms and palm worms and a lot of other critters that are living on microbial life and each other actually." SUPER CAPTION: Dr. Edmond A. Mathez, Curator at American Museum of Natural History These latest finds are now being exhaustively studied to see what new revelations may be uncovered.

Hydrothermal vent communities in the Gulf of California
Two remarkably different hydrothermal vent fields discovered in the southern Gulf of California were recently described by a team of scientists. Despite being relatively close together, these vents host very different animal communities. This finding contradicts a common scientific assumption that neighboring hydrothermal vents will share similar animal communities. Instead, new research suggests that local geology and the chemistry of the vent fluids are important factors determining biological community composition. This video shows different vent formations in the southern gulf as well as some of the animals living at these vents. The communities at these vents include worms such as Alvinella sp., Riftia pachyptila, Oasisia sp., as well as Bythograea crabs, and the fish Thermarces cerberus.

Mothership of Chinese deep-sea submersible launched
Chinese scientists moves one step closer to exploring the Mariana trench, the deepest part of the world. The mothership of China's first deep-sea submersible was launched in east China's Zhejiang Province on Thursday. Researchers say the submersible is capable of surveying more than 10,000 meters under water. The carrier, Zhang Jian, is named after an entrepreneur and educator in modern China, and is expected to be put into service in July. The 4,800-ton ship will go through trial voyages and equipment tests until the end of June. It will make its first official voyage to the 8,000-meter deep New Britain Trench in the Pacific Ocean in July and August. Its second trip will be in December to the world's deepest trench -- Mariana Trench, where the lowest point is about 11,000 meters deep.
