The Hydrothermal Vent Fluid Temperature and Resistivity sensor measures the temperature, resistivity, and eH of the mineral-rich fluid plumes that emanate from cracks on the seafloor, providing insight into the sub-surface structure and dynamics of these unique habitats.
This instrument measures the following data products. Select a data product's name to learn more.
- Vent Fluid Chloride Concentration (TRHPHCC)
- Vent Fluid Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) (TRHPHEH)
- Resistivity R1 (TRHPHR1)
- Resistivity R2 (TRHPHR2)
- Resistivity R3 (TRHPHR3)
- Vent Fluid Temperature from TRHPH (TRHPHTE)
- Thermocouple Temperature (TRHPHVC)
- ORP Volts (TRHPHVO)
- Thermistor Temperature (TRHPHVS)
