Details for: Northern EPR at 10.7°N
A low-temperature probe from the submersible vehicle Alvin is inserted into a "snow-blower" located in a collapse structure at 10 degrees 44 minutes N on the East Pacific Rise. The maximum temperatures reached only 9.5 degrees Centigrade. This extremely fresh lava flow was erupted within only a few weeks to a few months of an expedition in November 2003. The flow was covered by bacterial mats, had large amounts of bacterial floc ("snow-blowers") issuing from diffuse vents, and was sparsely populated by small animals. Photo courtesy J.R.
