Mid-ocean ridges are dynamic environments where globally significant chemical, biological and heat fluxes occur between the lithosphere and hydrosphere. Investigations of mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal systems are inherently interdisciplinary, reflecting the complex linkages between geological, biological, chemical, and physical processes. The Endeavour Segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge has been monitored on NEPTUNE Canada’s network for over two years. Initial research questions for this study area were:
Dr. Deborah Kelley, Associate Director for Science with the Regional Scale Nodes Component of the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI)
This workshop will provide an overview of the NEPTUNE Canada installation to date, describe opportunities for coordination, summarize current research results, and present future expansion plans. Further discussion will address the following questions:
The Endeavour Hydrothermal Systems workshop will be held at The W Hotel San Francisco, California.
