UK's deep sea mountain life filmed
Scientists have sent a remotely operated vehicle to film one of the U.K.'s three undersea mountains, known as seamounts. The Hebrides Terrace Seamount, off the west coast of Scotland, is higher than Ben Nevis, but its peak is 1,000 meters beneath the surface. Prof. J Murray Roberts, from Heriot-Watt University, and his colleagues filmed more than 100 species on its slopes. They published their findings in the open access journal Scientific Reports. Prof. Roberts has now shared the footage from the dive exclusively with the BBC.
