Lost City Chemistry Detectives

Relying on previous understanding of plate tectonics, high school oceanographers make inferences about chemical reactions that occur at hydrothermal vents. They view video clips of the Lost City hydrothermal vents and answer questions on an accompanying worksheet. Consider displaying actual specimens of the peridotite minerals produced by the chemical reaction between magma and seawater.
