Stunning 'Mirror Pools' Discovered on The Edge of Boiling Deep Sea Vents

MIKE MCRAE

4 APR 2019

It could be a landscape on an alien world. Strange optical effects and dazzling mineral formations bloom on the edge of water so hot it would be steam if not for the pressure of all that deep ocean above it.

"The vibrant colour found on the 'living rocks' was striking, and reflects a diversity in biological composition as well as mineral distributions."

Fluted shelves of mineral stained in brilliant shades; life fed not by sunlight but by the seep of liquid bubbling up from below; shimmering fluids pooling beneath rock shelves, refracting light like quicksilver mirrors.

Would any one seriously, after watching this video, doubt the wide spread  pollution we are causing on this planet? Anyone?

A new study analysing over 30 years' worth of data on human-made trashfound in the deepest parts of the ocean reveals almost 3,500 pieces of plastic and other debris have been discovered littering these remote, fragile ecosystems.

The Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the entire ocean – home to distant, alien forms of marine life we know next to nothing about – but its remote, almost unreachable location doesn't mean we haven't found ways to carelessly spoil it.

Did this article, and the video within the link, only resonate with me? Personally, while always doing my best to recycle as much as I can, I did not think that Humanity's thoughtlessness and carelessness had reached to such depths [no pun intended]

Again I urge those interested to watch the video around 7 minutes long, within the link

Anyone watch this video yet? About half way down the page at https://www.sciencealert.com/stunning-mirror-pools-and-other-wonders-discovered-on-the-edge-of-deep-sea-vents

A must see for anyone interested in the Earth sciences, biology, Climate science, Pollution.......Beautiful, awe inspiring, amazing, and worrying......7 minutes of your time to be convinced once and for all, what we are doing to this planet.

I remember when these were discovered 40 years ago.

Do you? 40 years ago? My article and links were/are from April this year. Do you have any link confirming those discoveries in my linked article, that they were discovered 40 years ago?

 

 

Here...I did some research for you.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVzBjY8oLkk

While deep sea Ocean thermo vents were discovered 40 years ago, the pollution and other aspects in the article in the OP were not

Hydrothermal vents were discovered in 1977.  I did a report on these in Oceanography class in 1981.

The point of the article was not the discovery of hydrothermal vents, which certainly have been know for around 40 years.

That's what I said, so what was the point of the article if not the vents?  I read it and there was absolutely nothing new there.

Then I suggest you didn't read it fully. Let's start anyway with the "Mirror Pools" and of course the main point of the article and my posting it, the presence of pollution in the deepest parts of the Ocean.

Citizen scientists collect vital microplastics data—from their yachts:

The world's oceans are under invasion by a virtually indestructible enemy—plastic. Florida International University (FIU) and the International SeaKeepers Society have joined forces to combat this plastic problem.

As part of a new collaborative project, dubbed the S.A.R.A.H. initiative, privately owned yachts become platforms for FIU scientists to conduct field research. Special nets are towed behind the vessels to gather samples of plastic debris in the water. They are designed to collect even the tiniest bits of plastic—that can be smaller than a grain of rice—known as microplastics.
