Community Highlight – Maggie Langwig & Katie Klier

In August 2023, Maggie Langwig and Katie Klier, PhD students in the Freshwater and Marine Science program, had the opportunity of a lifetime: A research cruise exploring hydrothermal vents near the Galápagos Islands. Not only did they obtain some of the first microbiological samples from this vent system, but they were also a part of the scientific team that discovered a new hydrothermal vent, named el Sendero del Cangrejo. Watch the highlights from the cruise.
