NOAA Photo Library Image - expl1812

Operation Deep Slope 2006. This sample of a seep community off of the western coast of Africa was taken with a box corer. Even though this community is on the opposite side of the Atlantic from the Gulf of Mexico, it bears a striking resemblance to the seep communities being studied in the Gulf of Mexico.
