Hope Spot - Gakkel Ridge: unlocking secrets of our planet

About Hope Spot - Gakkel Ridge: unlocking secrets of our planet
The Gakkel Ridge is one of the most mysterious mountain ranges on earth, found deep beneath the sea ice of the Arctic Ocean between Greenland and Siberia. It is volcanically active and the site of many deep hydrothermal vents. Very little deep-sea research has been conducted in this region. A 2007 expedition by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution discovered peculiar white mats of microbes spread across the dark volcanic substrate that contained many new species. It is thought that continued exploration will reveal life forms that are far different than those found elsewhere on Earth, unlocking secrets of our planet.
