Oceans

A ribbon of life in the deep ocean: David Gallo on TED.com

With vibrant video clips captured by submarines, David Gallo takes us to some of Earth’s darkest, most violent, toxic and beautiful habitats, the valleys and volcanic ridges of the oceans’ depths, where life is bizarre, resilient and shockingly abundant. (Recorded February 1998 in Monterey, California. Duration: 13:20.)
