TitleALARCON Expedition (ALAR)
AbstractMultidisciplinary study focusing on Alarcon Seamount, including rock dredging, heat flow measurements, sediment coring and seismic profiling, based on the multibeam bathymetric maps of the previous leg, ALAR01RR. Collaboration includes scientists and students from SIO, UCSC, Lawrence-Livermore (LLNL) and CICESE. Manganese-crusted partially dissolved "oyster" shells and small tube worms suggest that the calderas had hydrothermal vent communities.
