9 Degrees North
In November 1999, a team of scientists, students, and film makers aboard WHOI's Atlantis. ventured to hydrothermal vent sites at 9 degrees North in the Eastern Pacific. Using the submersible Alvin, they documented how the biology and landscape of these deep sea oases had changed in the 10 years since their discovery. This expedition report contains daily logs, images, profiles of the scientists and technicians involved, and an "Ask Us!" question/answer section.
