  European network maps darkest corners of the planet

Photo of article Cold seeps exist in some of the deepest, darkest, most hostile environments on the planet. They are vents located on the ocean floor and as part of underwater mud volcano systems. They give rise to some of the most unique organisms known to inhabit the earth, and can provide a wealth of information to scientists. Despite their potential, and because of their remote locations, they have been relatively understudied by researchers. To address the issue, the DG Research supported European Collaborative Research Scheme (EUROCORES), part of the European Science Foundation, developed the aptly named EUROMARGINS programme to study these fields of hydrocarbon-rich gas seepage, mud volcanoes and pockmarks. As EUROMARGINS is coming to a close, it ends in late 2007, EUROCORES organised an international conference to take stock of its achievements and discuss how to move on from here.
