New-Zealand cold seeps

In 2006, the international research team of the RENEWZ project, including team leaders A. Baco (WHOI) and A. Rowdan (NIWA), and co PIs Lisa Levin (SIO) and Craig Smith (UH), have observed, for the first time, the deep-sea communities living around methane seeps off New Zealand's east coast. The cruise on board R/V Tangaroa was an exploratory and investigation expedition funded by NOAA OE and NIWA.
