ODP in the Classroom
Leg 193 Manus Basin

In mid-Novermber 2000, the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) will begin drilling in the Manus Basin hydrothermal site. The primary scientific objective of this cruise (also known as Leg 193) is to study the differences between convergent margin and mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal sites. Previous drilling by ODP at hydrothermal vents has been limited to mid-ocean ridge sites.

Join the scientists about the drillship JOIDES Resolution as they explore the mysteries of hydrothermal vents at Manus Basin.
