Log Post: Keep On Venting – Ep. 2 – What is Chemosynthesis?

Hydrothermal vents are some of the most biologically active areas in the deep sea. Why? How can creatures not only survive, but *thrive* in areas with harsh chemicals, huge temperature differences, and crushing pressure? Come aboard Research Vessel Falkor and let SOI’s Science Communication intern Brittany Washington explain these wondrous and beautiful underwater features, as … Continued

Log Post: Keep On Venting – Ep. 1 – A Hydrothermal What?

How do interactions between the Earth’s rocky crust, molten core, and liquid oceans create hydrothermal vents? What exactly are these vents, and why are they interesting to researchers all over the world? Come aboard Research Vessel Falkor and let SOI’s Science Communication intern Brittany Washington explain these wondrous and beautiful underwater features, as well as … Continued

Log Post: Our Journey Ends and Another Begins

Most mornings during our month-long voyage on the Falkor from La Paz, Mexico, to Vigo, Spain, we would get up early so we could marvel at the sunrise from the ship’s top deck (in marine lingo – the monkey island or deck). It is a small deck located directly above the bridge, in the front … Continued
