Let life from the seafloor grace your desktop!

During research dives deep into the ocean, the ROV (remotely operated vehicle) encounters many organisms found only near hydrothermal systems.  Stillshots of these dives, showing life thriving on the ocean floor, are now available as wallpaper for your desktop!
