The Hydrothermal Vent Fluid Interactive Sampler collects and preserves fluid samples from hydrothermal vents and continuously measures vent fluid temperature. The sampler is able to be interactive as its connection to the fiber optic cable allows two-way communication and power. As such, sample bottles can be triggered from shore in response to volcanic or tectonic events or set to trigger at specified intervals.
