Equipment Used
time-series investigations of hydrothermal vents
and mineral deposits at Cleft and CoAxial segments
Eight successful camera tows, 20 successful submersible
dives (2775-2794).  Approximately 150 hours of video tape, 8000 still
photographs, and 40 sulfide samples. The camera tows revealed 5 new
vent sites south of the Plume site on southern Cleft segment.
A194WF -- (modified from 7/22/94 USGS Bulletin)
Randy Koski and Hank Chezar are back from a successful 24 day cruise to the
southern Juan de Fuca Ridge aboard the ATLANTIS II. Twenty dives with
submersible ALVIN DSV investigated and sampled recent lava flows, diffuse low
temperature hydrothermal venteng, high low temperature hydrothermal venting
(to 342dC), sulfide chimneys and mounds, and vent biology on the Cleft
and CoAxial segments of the ridge. Night operations during the cruise included
CTD casts and tows and camera and survery with the USGS camera system.
Eight camera tows yielded 32 hours of video plus 35-mm pictures of the sea
floor.  At least 7 new vent sites on the southernmost Juan de Fuca Ridge and
in the East Blanco Depression (on the Blanca Fracture Zone) were observed on
the deep tow video tape.  The cruise provided an opportunity to revisit sites
of hydrothermal activity and mineral deposition on southern Juan de Fuca Ridge
that were discovered during USGS-sponsored ALVIN dives in 1984.  This year's
cruise was funded by the NOAA/PMEL (Newport and Seattle), NSF, Florida
Institute of Technology, University of Florida, University of Washington and
the USGS.
