Information Specialist
Randy Koski
Equipment Used
Investigate hydrothermal flow, mineral deposits, microbiology, and petroleum
deposits in active vent fields of Southern Trough.
Information to be Derived
Composition of vent fluids, pore waters, hydrothermal deposits; microbiology of
hydrothermal chimneys; rate and conditions for chimney growth; pore water
composition; petroleum distribution in sediment.
Collected about 25 hydrothermal precipitate samples by ROV grab and 15 sediment
samples with push cores.  Petroleum recovered from hydrothermal samples and
sediment cores.  Organic chemistry of gases and petroleum, inorganic chemistry
of petroleum and rock samples analyzed in USGS
Extensive video and photographic records obtained during 7 ROV deployments are
archived at MBARI.  Reported Project is Metals in Brines and Petroleum (Mineral
Resources Program); MBARI-Guaymas Southern Trough Hydrothermal Field.  Reported
Chief Scientists are Debra Stakes (MBARI) and Margaret Tivey (WHOI).  Reported
Equipment Used are ROV Tiburon, push cores, water samplers, thermocouple arrays,
UV spectrophotometer, Osmosamplers, Niskin bottles, and temperature probe.
