The Hydrothermal Vent Discovery Lecture


The Hydrothermal Vent Discovery Lecture: "Lost City Hydrothermal Field" will be presented by Dr Deborah Kelley, Professor of Oceanography at the University of Washington on April 1, 4 p.m. in Gilfillan Auditorium. This lecture series celebrates the anniversary of the discovery in 1997 of hydrothermal vents on mid-ocean ridges and associated ecosystems. OSU played a significant role in that discovery, which was a major scientific achievement of the twentieth century.  Dr. Kelley will lead us on a tour of discovery of "Lost City", a stunning and new kind of vent system with unique ecology.
