||Participant in the CASM VI cruise to the
northern and southern segments of the Southern Explorer Ridge and
Tuzo Wilson Seamounts. Took part in operations as on CASM V. Sulfide
deposits were dredged from the southern segment of the Explorer
Ridge, and hydrothermal plumes were located on the northern segment.
||Participant in the CASM V cruise to the
Southern Explorer Ridge and Tuzo Wilson Seamounts: bottom photography,
basalt dredging, nephelometer runs, sediment coring, and hydrocast
deployment to obtain smoke samples from the hydrothermal vents.
At least 10 new sulfide deposits were discovered. Also: co-leader
of field trip to examine Precambrian stratigraphy and iron-formations
north of Lake Superior.
||Participant in the CASM IV cruise and PISCES
submersible dives to the Southern Explorer Ridge in the northeast
Pacific (in Canadian territorial waters). Seventeen new massive
sulfide deposits were discovered and sampled; near-axial sediments
were recovered by gravity coring.
