4 Aug 08 - Jets of searingly hot water spewing up from the sea floor have been discovered in a far-northern zone of the Arctic Ocean, Swiss-based scientists announced Monday.

The "black smokers" were found at a depth of  2,400 meters (7,874 feet), with water temperatures of up to 400C (752F).

A team from Norway's University of Bergen and the Lausanne-based Swiss Federal Institute of Technology found the vents on an expedition in June, with the results published on the Swiss polytechnic's website.
