Geochemistry of hydrothermal fluids at the Lucky Strike Hydrothermal Field data from the EMSO-Azores observatory, 2011
High temperature hydrothermal fluids are collected during the MOMARSAT 2011 by gas-tight fluid sampler manipulated and triggered by the hydraulic arm of the submarine vehicle (ROV Victor6000). Several hydrothermal vents are sampled, namely : Aisics, Montsegur, Isabel, Sintra, Y3, White Castle, South Crystal, Tour Eiffel, Cypress, Cimendeff, Crystal.
Several chemical analyses are performed aboard the research vessel: such as salinity and d20/20 by refractometer, pH by electrode (pH standard 4.01 and 7).
