VentDB is an effort funded by the US National Science Foundation to build and operate a data management system for hydrothermal spring geochemistry that will host and serve the full range of compositional data acquired on seafloor hydrothermal vents from all tectonic settings. VentDB supports the preservation and dissemination of analytical data on hydrothermal springs and plumes. VentDB complements existing geochemical data collections such as SedDB and PetDB. VentDB can accommodate published historical data as well as legacy and new data that investigators contribute. Content of VentDB is static and will not be updated until further notice.
Jason is a remote-controlled deep-diving vessel that gives shipboard scientists immediate, real-time access to the sea floor. Instead of making short, expensive dives in a submarine, scientists can stay on deck and guide Jason as deep as 6,500 meters (4 miles) to explore for days on end. Jason is a type of remotely operated vehicle (ROV), a free-swimming vessel connected by a long fiberoptic tether to its research ship. The 10-km (6 mile) tether delivers power and instructions to Jason and fetches data from it.
