'Barren' seafloor teeming with microbial life

Once considered a barren plain with the odd hydrothermal vent, the seafloor appears to be teeming with microbial life, according to a paper being published May 29 in Nature. A 60,000 kilometer seam of basalt is exposed along the mid-ocean ridge spreading system, representing potentially the lar...

Scientists find bacteria thriving on a feast of seafloor rock

On the deep ocean floor, microbial life is feeding on fresh volcanic rock and flourishing with greater abundance than even the most optimistic scientists thought possible. According to a study published May 28 in the journal Nature, scientists have found bacteria growing on oceanic crust in concen...

DEIMOS joins MARS and its satellite of instruments on seafloor

The planet Mars has a moon named Deimos, so it seems only appropriate that the ocean observatory MARS in Monterey Bay have its own DEIMOS. This DEIMOS, however, is an underwater acoustic package designed to monitor movements of fish and zooplankton. MARS, which stands for Monterey Accelerated ...
