AbstractTwo thousand metres below the surface of the Pacific Ocean off Canada's west coast is an underwater mountain range called the Juan de Fuca Ridge. Its steaming vents spew forth an abundance of molten minerals, supporting a unique ecosystem denied the privileges of light. The video takes the viewer to this remote new world and examines its scientific significance.
