About this book

The papers in Diversity of Hydrothermal Systems on Slow Spreading Ocean Ridges present a multidisciplinary overview of the remarkable emerging diversity of hydrothermal systems on slow spreading ocean ridges in the Atlantic, Indian, and Arctic oceans. When hydrothermal systems were first found on the East Pacific Rise and other Pacific ocean ridges beginning in the late 1970s, the community consensus held that the magma delivery rate of intermediate to fast spreading was necessary to support black smoker-type high-temperature systems and associated chemosynthetic ecosystems and polymetallic sulfide deposits.

Contrary to that consensus, hydrothermal systems not only occur on slow spreading ocean ridges but, as reported in Diversity of Hydrothermal Systems on Slow Spreading Ocean Ridges, are generally larger and spaced farther apart, exhibit different chemosynthetic ecosystems, produce larger mineral deposits, and occur in a much greater diversity of geologic settings than those systems in the Pacific. The full diversity of hydrothermal systems on slow spreading ocean ridges, reflected in the contributions to Diversity of Hydrothermal Systems on Slow Spreading Ocean Ridges, is only now emerging and opens an exciting new frontier for ocean ridge exploration.
