Notes on Vent Field Description:
Zeppilli and Danovaro (2009): "The investigated site was located in the Strait of Lembeh, between Sulawesi and the Moluccas Sea, in the region north of Sulawesi Island"; online search indicates that there are many known beach hot springs in the region, but can not determine when submarine vents were confirmed; dive operators mention underwater hot springs (http://murexdive.com/underwater-hot-springs-around-bangka-island/)
