Sampling Oceanic Crustal Fluids: Some Options
Rika Anderson (Carleton College)
Julie Huber (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
Susan Lang (University of South Carolina)
Michael Rappé (University of Hawaii)
The fluids that circulate through the oceanic crust can provide valuable windows to the microbiology and geochemistry of the subseafloor, but can be challenging to collect in sufficient volume and without contamination. We will discuss the many different types of samplers including those available for sampling hydrothermal fluids with submersibles, and the costs and benefits of the different approaches.
