Manned missions to Cayman Trough deep-sea vents

1,275 views 9 months ago
GoPro camera footage from dives by UK scientists in Japan's Shinkai6500 submersible to deep-sea vents in the Cayman Trough, as part of RV Yokosuka expedition YK13-05 led by Prof Ken Takai of JAMSTEC in June 2013.

Includes footage from the first manned mission to the world's deepest known hydrothermal vents--the Beebe Vent Field at a depth of ~5 km (3.1 miles)--and the first manned mission to the Von Damm Vent Field at a depth of 2.3 km (1.43 miles) on the top of an underwater mountain.
