      What are Hydrothermal Vents? In , scientists made a stunning discovery on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean: vents pouring hot, mineral-rich fluids from beneath the seafloor. Hydrothermal vents play an important part in ocean circulation and regulating the chemistry of ocean waters. They contribute nutrients required by ocean organisms. Microbes found at hydrothermal vents may also be important to the development of medicines and other products.

    Hydrothermal vents in the deep ocean typically form along the mid-ocean ridges, such as the East Pacific Rise and the Mid-Atlantic are locations where two tectonic plates are diverging and new crust is being formed.. The water that issues from seafloor hydrothermal vents consists mostly of sea water drawn into the hydrothermal system close to the volcanic edifice through faults and. When most people think of the deep sea around the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands and the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument, they immediately think “the deepest part of the ocean.” And while the Marianas Trench is amazingly cool, there are other equally awesome habitats and within the monument, such as hydrothermal vents.

    ‘Earth's caves and deep ocean hydrothermal vents sustain rain forest-like biodiversity without the benefit of sunlight.’ ‘One example is the current quest to identify deep-sea hydrothermal vents within the Arctic Ocean.’ ‘It has even been identified in deep-sea hydrothermal vents on the eastern Pacific Ocean . A hydrothermal vent ecosystem forms after a volcanic eruption at the seafloor. One area of hydrothermal vents, called “9 North” because it is located at 9°N on a mid-ocean ridge in the eastern Pacific Ocean, has undergone two periods of eruptions recently, one in and one in

A monospecific assemblage of myodocopid ostracods has been found in the Middle Devonian of a unique hydrothermal vent system of Hamar Laghdad (eastern Anti-Atlas, southern Morocco), which developed over a submarine eruption of basaltic rocks.

angeli George, The present species is easily distinguished from B. angeli by the structures of the toothed edges of the mandibular basis and coxa.

Species inhabiting deep-sea hydrothermal vents are strongly influenced by the geological setting, as it provides the chemical-rich fluids supporting the food web, creates the patchwork of seafloor habitat, and generates catastrophic disturbances that can eradicate entire communities.

The patches of vent habitat host a network of communities (a metacommunity) connected by dispersal of Cited by: 9. Hydrothermal vents are like hot springs, spewing jets of watery fluids from the seafloor into the ocean. The expelled fluid, if hot enough, is rich in dissolved metals and other chemicals.

Corliss et al. () found that the vent areas in the Galápagos Rift in the equatorial eastern Pacific Ocean are populated by animal communities. The. Although some hydrothermal vents can release water that is far too hot for life, every hydrothermal system features a thermal gradient that spans very hot hydrothermal fluids to cold seawater.

These gradients provide habitats for diverse psychrophilic, mesophilic. A hydrothermal vent is a fissure in the earth’s surface from which geothermally heated water issues.

They are typically found deep below the surface of the ocean. Hydrothermal vents are of interest to microbiologists because they have unique microbial communities found nowhere else on earth.
