Live Deep-Sea Exploration with the E/V Nautilus
Exploring the Gorringe Bank Seamounts (Webcast)
Date: October 14, 2011
Running Time: 00:25:03

Located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Portugal, the seamounts of Gorringe Bank rise nearly 5000 meters from the sea floor -- as tall as Europe's Alps. Join us as we talk live with scientists aboard the Nautilus as they explore these geologically active and biologically rich submarine mountains.
The Nautilus is exploring the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean looking for hydrothermal vents and the animal and microbial communities that spring up around them, as well as seeking underwater volcanoes and ancient shipwrecks. The ship is equipped with two remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) along with telepresence technology that beams real-time video feeds from the ROVs to scientists on shore. Follow along with expedition leader Bob Ballard and his crew as they investigate parts of the deep sea that have never been seen before.
