Now, a team of scientists with the International Ocean Discovery Program will study Zealandia by drilling into part of the 2-million-square-mile mass of continental crust. The m-long JOIDES Resolution, operated by the nation International Ocean Discovery Program, will undertake six expeditions totalling about 18 months and involving teams of scientists from all over the world.
New Zealand scientists will lead five of the expeditions and many other Kiwi scientists are involved, either as part of the shipboard science teams or as shore-based researchers.
Scientists Journey to the World's 'Lost' 8th Continent Live Science, July 18, Scientists will soon venture to the world's hidden eighth continent, the sunken land of Zealandia. The lost continent, which is mostly submerged, with all of New Zealand and a few islands peeking out from the water, is about half the size of Australia.
By drilling deep into its crust or upper layer, the new scientific expedition could provide clues about how the diving of one of Earth's plates beneath another, a process called subduction, fueled the growth of a volcano chain and this lost continent in the Pacific Ocean 50 million years ago.
The new expedition could also reveal how that Earth-altering event changed ocean currents and the climate. Floating lab drills 1. The Boxing Day tsunami of killed a quarter of million people with waves reaching 15 metres. Now, a drilling expedition under way in the Indian Ocean hopes to uncover the secrets of large underwater earthquakes that can trigger such tsunamis. Scientists study microbes beneath ocean floor UPI, April 8, Surprisingly, some microbes thrive beneath ocean floor, and are often found near hydrothermal vents.
For the first time, scientists have studied in detail the microbial community living inside dense, rocky crust under the colder North Pond, along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The microbes were found within rock samples collected by an ocean floor observatory installed by the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program in The observatory is situated on the North Pond, a small depression where sediment collects along the western flank of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. A US scientist has found something living in another surprising place: in the rocky sediment deep under the Atlantic Ocean, 50 to meters beneath the seafloor, which is itself under 4.
Researchers from the Marine Biological Laboratory MBL have, for the first time, described an active microbial community buried deep in cold oceanic crust at North Pond, an isolated sediment pond on the western flank of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Surprisingly, little is actually known about life in the planet's dark, dense, rocky crust, as the only way to get there is by drilling through meters of sediment.
Now, a team led by MBL Associate Scientist Julie Huber has delved into this buried marine biosphere to shed new light on the nature of life way down under. How deep does life go?
MBL study describes microbial neighborhood beneath ocean floor EurekAlert! The only way to get there is by drilling through meters of sediment until you hit rock, so information on this ubiquitous but buried marine biosphere is still scarce. Now, a team led by MBL Associate Scientist Julie Huber has added new details to our understanding of the nature of life way down under. Little did they know that their efforts would soon be overshadowed when John F. Kennedy launched the race to the moon in May of that year. Some efforts failed due to technical problems; others have fallen prey to various sorts of bad luck—including, as discovered after the fact, picking inopportune spots to drill.
