Getting into and out of hot water?

As R/V Oceanus Bosun Clindor Cacho (left) watches the oceanographic wire being pulled up out of the water, Alaa Albarakati of King Abdulaziz University, Saudi Arabia (standing), and WHOI researchers George Tupper  (holding bottle) and Frank Bahr (bending down) remove a Niskin bottle from the wire. The sample bottle is filled with seawater collected far below—but the water coming up is hot and very salty. WHOI scientist Amy Bower led this cruise in October 2008 to explore and sample an unusual region in the Red Sea where hot brines form near the sea floor.
