Science Objectives

Preliminary science activities at 3 Barbados seep sites (El Pilar, Orenoque A, Orenoque B) on the accretionary wedge for return visit to sites with DSRV Alvin in May-June 2012.  Part of the Seep Connectivity Project funded by NSF to investigate historical and contemporary linkages among Barbados, Gulf OF MExico, and Blake Ridge seep species.

Science Activities

At each site:
1) Sub-bottom profiling to locate seep areas
2) MOCNESS tow for larval sampling
3) Deep-water (35 m HOB) mooring deployment (current meter, 2 sediment/larval traps per mooring)
4) Bone/wood package deployment
