As they munch on noxious chemicals bubbling from the seafloor, these critters create electrical currents that flow through the walls of the chimneylike
structures they inhabit.
The sulfide-rich water jets create chimneylike
structures around each superheated plume, supporting a rich ecosystem of hyperthermophiles (the environment can be about 230 degrees Fahrenheit) that survive on chemosynthesis (converting sulfides into energy).
Minerals precipitating from fluids coming out of hydrothermal vents can create chimneylike

Hydrothermal vents can form chimneylike
