Hydrotermal vents are the result of seawater percolating down through fissures in the ocean crust in the vicinity of spreading centers or subduction zones (places on earth where two tectonic plates move away ore towards one another). The cold seawater is heated by hot magma and reemerges to form the vents. Seawater in hydrothermal vents may reach temperatures of over 340°C (700°F). Hot seawater in hydrothermal vents does not boil because of the extrme pressure at the depths where the vents are formed. If you want more information about this project, please contact us on info@archimedessolutions.nl
