The Canadian program “Eureka” dedicated a show to educate the public about science and water. It features video (courtesy of Bill Chadwick, Oregon State University, NOAA's Vents Program, and NOAA's Undersea Research Program) of black smoker chimneys taken in 2005 at the South Cleft segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge. The scientific news program is provided in French and can be seen at:
