Virtual Vents - ROPOS Dive R1919 -Science Sampling


Scientists completed their first collection of samples at the Niua South vent field and are going back down for more! Watch the shrimp-sucker and other tools used to get up-close-and-personal with the hydrothermal vents and collect more samples for analysis.

Hydrothermal vents are like geysers, or hot springs, on the ocean floor. Along mid-ocean ridges where tectonic plates spread apart, magma rises and cools to form new crust and volcanic mountain chains. Seawater circulates deep in the ocean's crust and becomes super-heated by hot magma.
