UCSB scientists probe sea floor venting to gain understanding of early life on Earth

...y issue of the journal, Geology. The discovery of deep sea hot springs and an abundance of microbes in the subseafloor are among the most remarkable scientific findings in Earth science during the latter half of the twentieth century, and have now become a powerful motivation for research and exploration...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...hrough which aggregations of diatoms sink into the deep sea, taking their carbon with them. The Kilo Moana returned to Hawaii after spending 42 days at sea. Early results suggest that the struggle for iron may indeed follow something like what happens in the soil. Wells and his colleagues are evaluating ...

One way of getting from the faster to the slower state is by opening ion channels, allowing potassium to flow through them. "Our hypothesis is that if you don't have potassium channels, you won't get slow waves,...

Biodiversity hotspots identify conservation priorities
