Underwater, Underground: An exploration of fluid flow and microbial habitats deeps within the ocean crust. Join Andrew Fisher, Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at UC Santa Cruz and Chris Reeves, Visitor Programs Manager at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center, for a lecture on life in the deep sea beneath the ocean crust. This presentation includes a live connection to Fisher on his expedition in the northeastern Pacific Ocean aboard the research vessel Atlantis. Fisher's research is helping to transform our understanding of the complex hydrothermal systems beneath the sea, revealing flows that are more vigorous, dynamic, and extensive than previously realized.
