WHOI Marine Chemist Jeff Seewald developed a isobaric gas-tight sampler for use at hydrothermal vent sites, but the device was critical in obtaining a sample of the fluid leaking from the Macondo well during the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill. To capture the fluid, a team of scientists used a remotely operated vehicle to position the sampler into the well. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
