Knowledge of the plume structure gained by the use of the AUV Sentry guided the team in collecting physical samples for further laboratory analyses using a cable-lowered water sampling system that measures conductivity, temperature, and depth (CTD). The CTD was instrumented with a TETHYS mass spectrometer.
