1.4 - Cruise Report: Thiobacteria Survey MV Snowgoose

Publication Year:

Sampling Cruise # 29 was undertaken to complete an environmental verification programme in ML170. A set of bottled thiobateria samples was taken from 10 grab samples sites. Two gravity core samples were also taken from ML170 filling two gaps in the sampling grid of the environmental verification assessment of August 2013. The thiobacteria samples were required to be collected in a contamination free manner which meant that handling protocols precluded any contact with skin. The thiobacteria samples and the two environmental cores were to be cooled and kept frozen to -18 deg °C from time of collection and during delivery to UWC and CSIR in Cape Town.
