Exploring Deep-Sea Data
MetadataShow full item record
The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) has collected and archived deep-sea video from remotely operated vehicle dives since 1988. The video archive contains footage and data on the biological, chemical, geological, and physical aspects of deep regions of the Pacific. MBARI developed a software system, the Video Annotation and Reference System, to create, store, and retrieve video annotations. The system is based on a hierarchical catalog of biological, geological, and technical terms that allows consistent and rapid classification of objects seen on video. Based on knowledge collected by the annotation process, MBARI staff developed a web-based Deep-Sea Guide to the organisms and geologic features recorded on remotely operated vehicle dives into the deep sea. The searchable guide provides information about biological taxonomy, geology, and habitats, and displays dynamic histograms and useful statistics derived from the video annotations.

Flood, Roger D. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-01)Many of the small-scale topographic features (dimensions of centimeters to kilometers) found on the Blake-Bahama Outer Ridge (western North Atiantic, water depth greater than 4000 m) and in the Rockall Trough (northeastern ...
Investigation of extractable organic compounds in deep-sea hydrothermal vent fluids along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge McCollom, Thomas M.; Seewald, Jeffrey S.; German, Christopher R. (2015-01)The possibility that deep-sea hydrothermal vents may contain organic compounds produced by abiotic synthesis or by microbial communities living deep beneath the surface has led to numerous studies of the organic composition ...
Biogeography and ecology of the rare and abundant microbial lineages in deep-sea hydrothermal vents Anderson, Rika E.; Sogin, Mitchell L.; Baross, John A. (2014-11)Environmental gradients generate countless ecological niches in deep-sea hydrothermal vent systems, which foster diverse microbial communities. The majority of distinct microbial lineages in these communities occur in ...
