Dive 1798 Highlights ASHES Vent Field
ROPOS Dive 1798 to the ASHES Hydrothermal Field within Axial Caldera: ROPOS installed a new thermister array (TMPSF) in a new position, and connected it to the Medium Powered Junction Box (MJ03B) at port J07. ROPOS moved the OSMO sampler and inserted the probe into new thermister array. The HD camera lens installed the year before at the Mushroom vent was cleaned. The old thermister array was brought back to the R/V Thompson. Video credit: NSF-OOI/UW/CSSF; Dive R1798; V14.
