Sampling at Kick 'em Jenny

Sampling at Kick 'em Jenny

We've made use of every tool in Hercules' bag during our time in the crater of the Kick 'em Jenny submarine volcano - watch us sample rocks, sediment, and biology, plus see our temperature sensor and more in action. And if that wasn't enough, this video also features some of the coolest cold seep communities we've ever seen. Those white mats that are scattered throughout the clip? Those are huge swaths of chemosynthetic bacteria, turning deadly chemicals into energy and supporting entire communities, all in the Caribbean's only active submarine volcano.
