This is a source documenting as best they could the ecosystem that is the deep sea and comments of plant characteristics. This is a reliable source from Gale that was published in 2010. This was a case study that did thorough research specifically on the deep sea ecosystem.

Jenifer Chong's insight:

Currency:

Is the information out-of-date? Not necessarily

Exploring Oceans Video: Bermuda

The waters around Bermuda host a liquid jungle of creatures that exist in floating forests of golden brown sargassum seaweed. Deep within its waters live bio...
Jenifer Chong's insight:

Currency:

It's only a few years old and I don't think the ocean waters near Bermuda would have significantly changed from 2009 to today.

Relevance:

The information isn't general and rather specifies on the waters around Bermuda. However, the video provides information about creatures in deep sea waters which allows viewers to visualize what other creatures live in the deep waters of all oceans.

Authority:

I think National Geographic is a notable source and definitely is trustworthy and reliable. It even has its own channel, I believe.

Filmed 1998

Posted Sep 2008

So it's a little outdated but the information included doesn't seem to differ much from the information we already know

Authority:

Ted Talks are accurate and a speaker wouldn't be talking if he/she wasn't capable of teaching content

Deep sea | Article | World Book Encyclopedia

Jenifer Chong's insight:

Currency:

The information is up-to-date just because worldbook is good on keeping up with its information. It's also visible that it's updated because when you want to cite the source, the year is current and is actually this year, 2013 rather than some outdated article that would've been update in 1930.

Relevance:

Well, there are 3 different types of worldbook encyclopedias that are sectioned by audience such as kids, students, and advanced. I chose advanced so it's safe to assume that the intended audience is for those who want a deeper understanding of the deep sea/ocean. The given information offers a detailed understanding of the deep ocean whether its living organisms, environment, and exploration. It all relates back to the characteristics of a deep ocean. 

Authority:

By the diction, the author clearly knows his information. It also says on the bottom of the article that Peter R. Girguis has a Ph.D and is an assistant professor and either teaches at Harvard University or studied there. 

Accuracy:

There's a section for citation so we can assume how accurate they are if they're putting the contributor information up.

Purpose:

The purpose isn't bluntly stated but reading through the article, I can see that the article intends to inform. There is no bias and it's just informative.
