VIDEO: IODP Expedition 370: Exploring the T-Limit of the Deep Biosphere off Muroto

On 12 September 2016, an international team of 25 researchers boarded the drilling vessel Chikyu, the world’s largest scientific research vessel, in Shimizu Port in Shizuoka, Japan, to begin a 60-day quest to determine the limits of life below the ocean’s floor.

 

On 12 September 2016, an international team of 25 researchers boarded the drilling vessel (D/V) Chikyu, the world’s largest scientific research vessel, in Shimizu Port in Shizuoka, Japan, to begin a 60-day quest to determine the limits of life below the ocean’s floor. In this video, created by JAMSTEC, find out more about the team and their work as part of IODP Expedtion 370: T-Limit of the Deep Biosphere off Muroto
