Video: Live from hydrothermal vents in the Guaymas Basin

Watch video from a ROV Jason and AUV Sentry expedition on the Scripps-operated R/V Roger Ravelle to the Guaymas Basin the Gulf of California. This trip was lead by Chief Scientist for Deep Submergence Anna Michel and included scientists from Harvard University, Michigan State University, and the Ensenada Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education in Mexico.

An interdisciplinary team of biologists, geologists, chemists and engineers walk you through their work at the site, what's special about the Guaymas Basin, and the paths they took to careers in ocean science and engineering.

The team on Roger Revelle took questions live from classrooms around the U.S. and Canada and shared live video from ROV Jason on the seafloor.

Hosted by WHOI | Live from the seafloor in the Gulf of California Part 1 and 2

In Part 1 Chief Scientist Anna Michele describes the goals of the expedition and some of the students describe their work at the site, while live video from ROV Jason shows scenes from the seafloor of active hydrothermal vents in the Guaymas Basin.

In Part 2, students on the expedition play a video (also below) showing some of the people who made the expedition possible and share their experiences on the ship and in their career paths in ocean science and engineering
