Beginning on January 31, 2002, a huge section of the Larsen Ice Shelf in Antarctica broke off and floated away. Scientists used a robotic vehicle to look at what was under the shelf and have discovered huge mats of bacteria as well as clams surrounding a mud volcano vent. This vent is a cold seep, a rare phenomenon (and the first found in the Antarctic) where methane gas bubbles up from under the ... Full description.
