Hello and welcome to the new home of the DEEPSEA mailing list and 
newsgroup.  DEEPSEA's purpose is to serve the scientific community 
studying the biology, oceanography, and geology of the deep-sea.  DEEPSEA 
has been existance at the University of Victoria for the last three years 
and has just moved to its new home at BIOSCI, giving DEEPSEA additional 
USENET access.

This newsgroup is moderated and content will be restricted to 
professional, technical, and scientific aspects of deep-sea exploration 
and research.  Traditional topics include marine biogeography, the nature 
of hydrothermal vent communities, symposium annoucements, searches for 
specialist literature, technical commentaries, and position 
annoucements.  Any topic related to professional, technical, and 
scientific aspects of deep-sea exploration and research is welcome but 
amateur commentary, internet SPAM, or generally uninformative discussion 
will be eliminated without notice.  General questions and commentary from 
the public will be welcomed if they are of significant content - all 
others will be screened by the moderator.

I wish you all a Happy New Year and it is my hope that DEEPSEA will 
continue to be a useful resource for the scientific community.
