Instruments at International District 1

In 2014, a digital-still camera (left), a mass spectrometer (middle) and a fluid- and microbial-DNA sampler (right) were installed in the International District Hydrothermal Field at the vent called El Gordo. A titanium "hat" rests on top of the structure marked by diffuse flow. Inside the "hat" are temperature probes and intake nozzles for the fluid-DNA sampler, and mass spectrometer.
