Benthic Flow Meters Deployed

Benthic Flow Meters Deployed

During the VISIONS'13 Expedition, two types of flow meters (CAT and Mosquito) were deployed at the summit of Southern Hydrate Ridge near the Einstein's Grotto active seep site - each instrument has specific ranges of flow that they measure. They will be recovered in 2014, providing year-long records of flow into and out of the sediment. Photo credit: OOI-NSF/UW/CSSF.
