Volcanoes, Underwater Hot Springs, and Life in the Extreme

Friday April 10, 2015 7-8:30pm: NW Educational  Service Dist. Building,1601 R Ave., Anacortes.

Winter Lecture Ap 10 2015Some of the most exciting discoveries of the past decade came from studying submarine volcanoes and the relationships between the gas rich fluids they release and the life that thrives in these extreme, high temperature, deep-sea environments.  The most advanced underwater volcanic observatory in the world was recently installed off the coast of Oregon and now streams real-time data back to shore from one of the most active hydrothermal systems on earth.  Come hear Dr. Deborah Kelley, UW School of Oceanography, talk about the new worlds and insights revealed by this technology and well as what it is like to dive 12,000 feet below the ocean in the 3-person submersible named Alvin.
