Extreme Environments and Life at Axial Seamount

Jesse Turner, Katie Bigham, and Sam Albertson wrote the script for, and produced, this wonderful video on hydrothermal vents at the summit of Axial Seamount. The video highlights one of the most extreme environments on Earth and the novel life that thrives there in the absence of sunlight, fueled from the volcano itself. Jesse and Katie are students in the School of Oceanograpy, and Sam is a pre-engineering student. VISIONS’14 Leg 1
