During 2011, two deep-sea observatories focusing on hydrothermal vent ecology were up and running in the Atlantic (Eiffel Tower, Lucky Strike vent field) and the North-East Pacific Ocean (NEP) (Grotto, Main Endeavour field). Both ecological modules recorded imagery and environmental variables jointly for a time span of 23 days (7–30 October 2011) and environmental variables for up to 9 months (October 2011 to June 2012). Community dynamics were assessed based on imagery analysis and rhythms in temporal variation for both fauna and environment were revealed. Tidal rhythms were found to be at play in the two settings and were most visible in temperature and tubeworm appearances (at NEP). A 6-hour lag in tidal rhythm occurrence was observed between Pacific and Atlantic hydrothermal vents which corresponds to the geographical distance and time delay between the two sites.
