Animation of Vehicle Operations on the Gakkel Ridge

Working from the Swedish icebreaker Oden, researchers will first lower a CTD to the deep ocean and look broadly for temperature and chemical signals of hydrothermal vents. Then the autonomous vehicle Puma will dive to the deep ocean to look for the plume, or source of venting. Once a vent site is found, the Jaguar robotic vehicle will dive to the seafloor to take photos and map the area. Finally, the CAMPER towed vehicle will be lowered to the bottom for collecting samples of rock, sediment, water, and creatures.
