National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense…" With an annual budget of about $5.5 billion, they are the funding source for approximately 20 percent of all federally supported basic research conducted by America's colleges and universities. In many fields such as mathematics, computer science and the social sciences, NSF is the major source of federal backing.

Dive & Discover Creators
Dan Fornari, Senior Scientist
河北体彩网-球探比分 Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Dr. Fornari is interested in studying small volcanoes (seamounts) on the ocean floor and the volcanic and hydrothermal processes at the Mid-Ocean Ridge axis. He has worked extensively on studies of hydrothermal vents and related biological communities following underwater eruptions. He has also have been involved with improvements to the submersible Alvin and to remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and tethered vehicles operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Susan Humphris, Senior Scientist
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Dr. Humphris’ research focuses on understanding hydrothermal processes at mid-ocean ridges. She has mapped and sampled various sites of hydrothermal activity using the submersible Alvin河北体彩网-球探比分 and several remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), including Jason. Her goal was to understand the relationship between hydrothermal processes and volcanic activity. She has also worked extensively on the chemical reactions that take place between circulating seawater and the oceanic crust in hydrothermal systems. These reactions are important to understanding how seawater gets transformed into the hot hydrothermal fluid.
