Video Journal #3: Diving for Stromatolites

East Antarctica

Dive into the frigid waters of Lake Untersee with Dr. Dale Andersen to meet a living community of some of Earth’s oldest fossils—stromatolites—and learn more about the different kinds of cyanobacteria that create them. This is the third installment in a series of video journals by Dr. Heck documenting the 2012 joint expedition between The Field Museum, the Geological Survey of India, the Russian Antarctic Expedition, and the SETI Institute. The expedition itself was sponsored by The Tawani Foundation.
