Dr. Emily Hall and Jim Culter
Mote Scientists embark on journeys to the “deep” to explore blue holes. Blue holes are underwater sinkholes, similar to sink holes on land. Underwater sink holes, springs, and caverns are karst (calcium carbonate rock) features that are scattered across Florida’s shelf floor. They vary in size, shape and depth, but most are ecological hot spots. A blue hole can be an oasis in an otherwise barren seafloor. Please join Dr. Emily Hall and Jim Culter as they take you with them on a journey and explore these beautiful and mystery filled holes in our own Gulf of Mexico!
