The Jamieson Marine Geology Laboratory at Memorial University investigates hydrothermal processes at and below the ocean floor. Our research focuses on marine mineral resources, deep sea exploration, and seafloor mapping.

Our work integrates innovative exploration and mapping technology with analyses (petrographic, geochemical, stable isotope, and geochronological) of geological samples such as hydrothermal precipitates collected from “black smoker” hydrothermal vents. We investigate ore-forming processes on the seafloor and the interactions between geological and biological processes at both active and inactive hydrothermal vent sites.
