Azores

Set atop an active volcano, the Lucky Strike, and its hydrothermal field, EMSO-Azores observatory gives unique research opportunities. The hydrothermal vent, which is a fissure in Earth's surface from which hot water comes out, can be investigated with a multidisciplinary approach. The hosted peculiar fauna and microbial communities, the water composition and circulation are studied. Being at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where tectonic plates diverge, the site allows studying closely tectonic and volcanic activities.
