Tim Shank being interviewed

Bundle Up!

A documentary crew films an interview with WHOI deep-sea biologist Tim Shank (center in brown jacket) on Dyer’s Dock during a bitterly cold January morning in Woods Hole. The interview, which will appear in a two-hour documentary to air on PBS in the fall, highlights Shank’s research on life at hydrothermal vents and his work on a 2007 expedition to the Gakkel Ridge in the eastern Arctic Ocean. The ridge is the deepest mid-ocean ridge and part of the 60,000-kilometer (40,000-mile) continuous chain of volcanic seafloor mountains that runs like a giant zipper throughout the globe.
