Volcanoes of the Deep Sea.|
Through the porthole of a submersible, The CSPG Educational Trust Fund, in partnership with The Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (CSEG), and The Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists & Geophysicists of Alberta (APEGGA), will present the 2004 Honorary Address: Volcanoes of the Deep Sea.
National Geographic Photographer Emory Kristof will take us to the depths of the oceans and introduce us to the sunless world that flourishes along the Mid-Ocean Ridges. At over 2000 feet below sea level, technology will allow us to discover the unknown universe of mid-oceanic ridges and deep sea vents including scalding black smokers billowing ultra-hot fluids and unique organisms exploiting the rich waters. Emory's work in the deep sea involves a challenging journey which has led to many scientific breakthroughs and thanks to the generosity of corporate sponsors, a complimentary afternoon presentation for over 2400 students will inspire a new generation of scientific explorers.
