INSPIRE: Chile Margin 2010

From 24 February to 17 March, the educational cruise INSPIRE on board R/V Melville will explore chemosynthetic ecosystems along the Chile margin.

A diverse team of North and South American students will be tackling broad ranging questions about the geology, microbial processing, unicellular life, multi-cellular animals, their food and dispersal abilities at depths far from the sunlit surface. They will be working with an international team of scientists and students from Chile and from other US Institutions (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, University of Washington) to blend expertise across geological, chemical and biological disciplines, and to forge international bonds of collaboration.
