Synopsis

Research of the origins of life in connection with a marine environment started at the end of the seventies, when the "black smokers" in the Pacific were discovered and the Red Sea deep hydrothermal brines were found to be a fruitful environment for abiotic synthesis of life precursors. For a while this research was categorized under the heading "Chemistry", but in less than a decade the topic became fully integrated into the science of "oceanography". The Scientific Committee on Oceanographic Research (SCOR) initiated working Group 91: "Chemical Evolution and Origin of Life in Marine Hydrothermal Systems". This volume contains the final report of this working group.
