If you missed this week's webinar with Dr. Chris German, the recording is now available online!

Is this the vent-site you should be looking for?  Escaping Earthly 
prejudices.

Abstract:   Earth’s ocean is but one of many. With the ongoing discovery and exploration of multiple ocean worlds in our solar system (e.g. Enceladus, Europa, Titan), Earth is no longer the lone field site informing our understanding of fundamental ocean processes. And yet, the diversity of submarine venting on Earth does provide valuable analog insights on what could be occurring on the floor of alien oceans. In this talk, Dr. German will guide us through a visual tour of the geo-diversity of submarine venting on Earth and describe what they can reveal about putative venting on ocean worlds.
