Project Title: Development and Deployment of Autonomous and Remotely Operated Chemical Sensor System: Integrated Laboratory and Field Studies of Seafloor Hydrothermal Vent Fluids Project Status: Submitted
Principal Investigator: Kang Ding, UMTC Project Institution: UMTC
Project ID: 104274 Version #: 2
Date Submitted: 2/11/2014 10:35:00 PM Created By: Kang Ding
Date Last Modified: 7/24/2014 1:34:00 PM URI Serial #: None
Funding Agencies: NSF/OCE/OTIC - 1434798 - Funded
Summary of Field Work: We request sea time with Atlantis/Alvin in 2016 for application of the mobile calibration chemical sensor systems in diffuse flow vent fluid at EPR 9°N. Six Alvin dives are requested for testing the mobile and stationary sensor/calibrator systems in diffuse flow hydrothermal fluids, while pH/redox probes would be deployed at nearby high temperature vents for studying in-situ chemical conditions at the deep reaction zone..
Summary of Facility Requirements: We are asking 6 Alvin dives, and also an elevator for deploying the instrument.
