Volcanoes of the Deep Sea

Volcanoes of the Deep Sea
NEW YORK  •  American Museum of Natural History  •  Ongoing
Volcanoes of the Deep Sea, a groundbreaking new IMAX® film directed by Stephen Low (who also directed Titanica) explores the depths of the ocean. Take a 12,000-foot dive to the bottom of the ocean to witness life erupting in environments of crushing pressure, extreme temperatures, and water toxic to most life on Earth. Explore volcanic worlds recently discovered atop the Mid-Ocean Ridge, the longest mountain chain on Earth, snaking around the world for more than 40,000 miles. Water and chemicals spewing from these hydrothermal vents can easily reach more than 750 degrees Fahrenheit (hot enough to melt lead), and the pressures can reach a crushing 3,500 pounds per square inch.
