THIS EXHIBITION IS NOW CLOSED
PAST EXHIBITION: What Lies Beneath: Exploring Yellowstone Lake’s Mysterious Vents documented the scientific expedition known as the Hydrothermal Dynamics of Yellowstone Lake (or HD-YLAKE) project through photos by Chris Linder of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The HD-YLAKE project sought to understand how earthquakes, volcanic processes, and climate affect the hydrothermal system located beneath Yellowstone Lake. Linder’s photographs explore the present-day landscape as well as the day-to-day operations of the expedition, including that of Yogi, a remotely operated vehicle used to gather samples and readings in and around vents on the lake floor.
This special exhibit was on display in the John Bunker Sands Photography Gallery from October 2, 2021, to May 2, 2022.
Funding for What Lies Beneath was provided by the National Science Foundation.
