Study Sites

I visited Atlantis Massif  in fall of 2004 on a cruise of the RV Atlantis. We used the Alvin manned submersible and the remotely operated submersible ARGO II to map and sample the sea floor This cruise made several significant discoveries, including the Lost City hydrothermal vent field, which won the principle investigators considerable acclaim. More information on this cruise can be found here.


I visited the 15-20 Fracture Zone in the summer of 2003 on Ocean Drilling Program Leg 209. During this 8-week long cruise, we drilled 6 peridotite and gabbro exposures north and south of the transform fault.
