Science Objectives

This expedition consists of multiple projects lead by different PIs, funded by the NSF, NOAA, and a Chinese University.  All the projects involve Jason dives at either Axial Seamount or Endeavour segment.  The ROV dives will make geophysical measurements of volcano inflation, collect coordinated hydrothermal vent fluid samples for chemical and microbial analysis, and recover and deploy seafloor monitoring instruments in and around hydrothermal vent sites.  Mooring deployments and recoveries between ROV dives at Axial (all moorings short <40 m tall; 3 BPRs, 1 OBH, 1 RAS).
