“The Auka Vent Field is relatively close (to the JaichMaa’ja’ag field), so we were expecting to find similar readings. We were surprised to find out that the heat decays more rapidly and there seems to be a relation between biodiverse spots and warmer areas, even without hydrothermal vents.”

The #PescaderoVentDiving2 science team explains the goals and information gathered during Leg 2 of the expedition.
