From the WGBH Forum Network: "Mid-ocean ridges are the single largest continuous geological feature of our planet. These ridges lie beneath another predominant planetary feature, the ocean. This talk follows an eye-opening journey of discovery along the margins of the Pacific plate and reassesses why the sea is salty.Gary Massoth's research focus has been to assess the effects of deep-sea hydrothermal discharge on the chemistry of the oceans, including the design and robust exercise of chemical instruments for in situ sampling and analysis."
