According to a new study of microbes living beneath deep-sea hydrothermal vents, subsurface communities are just as productive as the microbes and animals inhabiting the vent ecosystems above.
The 4D Workshop was convened from June 4-6, 2018 to explore ways to advance our understanding of Earth’s complex co-evolving geosphere and biosphere through the collection, analysis, and…
Lukewarm fluids from cool hydrothermal vent systems supply nitrate and oxygen to microbial communities in overlying sediments.
Scientists have long known that springs emerging from mountains made of old seafloor, called ophiolites, hold large amounts of methane. New research suggests that chromitite rocks within the…

A diverse, multidisciplinary group of scientists attended the inaugural Gordon Research Conference on Deep Carbon Science, 17-22 June 2018 for five days of lively, provocative discussions.
Serpentinization warrants an article on Wikipedia. Might you lend a hand?
An international collaboration of scientists explores the interactions between the deep biosphere and geosphere by drilling into a mud volcano off the coast of Japan.
When gases escape at mid-ocean ridges, carbon dioxide and heavier noble gases don’t have time to stabilize between the bubbles and the magma. A portion of these gases “miss the bus” and stay behind…
Modeling the location of Large Igneous Provinces for the past 400 million years shows that their eruptions and subsequent weathering modulate global climate.
