Summary
Abstract: The cruise will include 16 dives with DSV Alvin or ROV Jason, to allow time for deployment and collection of experiments and for extensive sampling of discrete vents along the axis of the 9?46?N to 9?53?N segment of the East Pacific Rise (EPR). We propose to deploy experiments/sample a low temperature diffuse flow vent (e.g., Crab Spa; T: 10-30?C), and a higher temperature vent (e.g., L-vent; T: ... View entire text

Purpose: Deep-sea hydrothermal vents, first discovered in 1977, are ?poster child? ecosystems where microbial chemosynthesis rather than photosynthesis is the primary source of organic carbon. Significant gaps remain in our understanding of the underlying microbiology and biogeochemistry of these fascinating ecosystems. Missing are the identification of specific microorganisms mediating critical reactions ... View entire text
