Underwater Oasis Found Off Norway

And underwater “oasis” was found in the Arctic, off the coast of Norway.

Underwater hot springs keep the actic environment warm enough for tropical-type coral to form.


Bosda, interesting article. I’d love to find out if any of the species are actually of the same genus as current tropical coral reef environments - if so it would indicate something about how long that’s been out there.

Of course, all scientific interest aside - any article that mentions a ROV called ‘Bathysaurus’ is worth mentioning simply for that alone. :smiley:
