Spectacular Underwater Brine Lake

During our 2015 exploration in the Gulf of Mexico, the team encountered a spectacular brine pool and collected mussel samples from the area. A brine lake is water far more saline than the surrounding seawater so it doesn't mix and creates its own surface tension. As a result, you see surface waves and find very unusual geologic features and biology living on their "shores."
