Deep-Sea Dialogues: Seamounts

Most seamounts are remnants of extinct, underwater volcanoes. They are found in every ocean basin, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Seamounts are often hotspots for biodiversity because they provide a hard substrate for deep-sea organisms to attach and grow, and interact with deep-sea currents driving nutrients up from the seafloor.
