Thermistor Array Deployed for 1 Year

Thermistor Array Deployed for 1 Year

During VISIONS '13 ROPOS Dive R1636, the battery-powered version of the thermistor array was deployed at a small diffuse flow site at the base of the hydrothermal chimney called Mushroom.  The thermistor array will provide a 3-dimensional "view" of the temperature structure at this site, which will help inform the community about the environmental conditions under which the biological assemblages thrive and evolve. This instrument was recovered during Leg 1 of the VISIONS'14 expedition, and replaced with a cabled instrument now connected to the Primary Infrastructure. Photo credit: OOI-NSF/UW/CSSF
