From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6-A colorful picture of smoking rock chimneys surrounded by giant tubeworms and clams invites readers into the unusual ecosystem of deep-sea vents. The first chapter introduces life-forms specific to this habitat and illustrates them with full-color photographs. The book goes on to recapitulate the discovery of hot vents in 1977. The narrative includes vivid comparisons in order to explain the difficulties of this type of deep-sea exploring. It describes where the superheated water comes from, the geology of the vents, and how the rock chimneys are formed from the chemicals in the hot water. Color diagrams of the formation of new sea floor and tectonic plates are clear and understandable, and the computer-generated map of the ocean floor pulsates in vibrant color. Full-color illustrations amplify the descriptions, definitions, and explanations. This title updates R. V. Fodor's The Strange World of Deep-Sea Vents (Enslow, 1991) and John F. Waters's Deep-Sea Vents (Cobblehill, 1994) and provides better quality photographs and more detailed information. A resource list refers readers to related books, magazine articles, videos, and Web addresses.
