This article discusses the different zones of light that exist within the ocean and how the varying degrees of sunlight and total darkness affect what lives in each zone. Specifically, it covers: the photic zone, the only region where plants and organisms that depend on photosynthesis can live; the aphotic zone, where light is too dim for photosynthesis and organisms rely on detritus (bits of decaying ...

What can sharks teach us about our immune system? What can horseshoe crabs show us about eyesight? The more we learn about the ocean, the more we realize how critical these vast bodies of water are to our health and well-being. Sometimes the ocean helps us, as when a marine organism yields a new medical treatment. At other times, the ocean poses the threat of coastal storm surges or toxic algal ... Full description.

On this 2003 expedition, scientists from several institutions explored a hydrothermal field on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, studying limestone formations and new life forms, creating maps of this unique location. Overviews include: research objectives, deep sea hot spring environments, seafloor mapping, marine geology, vent chemistry, instrumentation and vessel technology. Shipboard life communicated through ... Full description.

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 ... Full description.
