The Deepsea Research Newsgroup [black smoker]

The DEEPSEA Research Newsgroup exists to serve as an electronic forum for the world's community of deep-sea and hydrothermal vent/seep biologists, oceanographers, and geologists. Frequent uses of DEEPSEA include searches for specialist literature or opinion, specimen exchange, technical discussions, and general discussions about deep-sea marine biology and geology. As of December 1995, DEEPSEA had over 600 members representing more than 35 countries.
