4616 thumbnail picture
A nearly linear furrow in the seafloor with a large red shrimp living in the furrow.
2010 July 10
4617 thumbnail picture
A nearly linear furrow in the seafloor. This feature appears to be very asymmetric with a very narrow width and long lineal extent. Could this be caused by tectonism, by biological agents, or by sedimentary erosive activity?
2010 July 10
4618 thumbnail picture
Layers of mud exposed.
2010 July 10
4619 thumbnail picture
Area on right appears to be a flow of material that has covered up much material .

2010 July 12
4621 thumbnail picture
Looking down on ripple patterns in sediment interspersed with boulders.
2010 July 13
4622 thumbnail picture
Iron oxide hydrothermal alteration of rock outcrop.
2010 July 13
4623 thumbnail picture
Iron oxide hydrothermal alteration of rock outcrop. The bright yellow area may be bacterial mat material.
2010 July 13
4624 thumbnail picture
Hydrothermal alteration around a crevice. Perhaps this was the site of a warm hydrothermal spring.
2010 July 24
4625 thumbnail picture
Ledge with iron oxide staining. Small fauna including various sponges and corals can be seen.
2010 July 24
4626 thumbnail picture
Iron oxide staining on edge of rock outcrop.
2010 July 24
4627 thumbnail picture
Rocks with iron oxide staining. A brownish red anemone is seen above the orange rocks.
2010 July 24
4628 thumbnail picture
A small trench, perhaps caused by a whale foraging along bottom, with a red shrimp.
2010 July 25
4629 thumbnail picture
The equivalent of a deep sea crop circle. Did biological or geological phenomena cause this circular array of holes? Probably biological cause but why would a group of animals or a single animal excavate a number of holes in this circular pattern?
2010 July 26
4630 thumbnail picture
The equivalent of a deep sea crop circle. Did biological or geological phenomena cause this circular array of holes? Probably biological cause but why would a group of animals or a single animal excavate a number of holes in this circular pattern?
2010 July 26
4631 thumbnail picture
A linear slit-like crevice in an otherwise undisturbed seafloor. Clouds of dust probably caused by Little Hercules disturbing seafloor.
2010 July 27
4632 thumbnail picture
A wall of somewhat columnar jointed volcanic rock. A lone white sponge adorns the wall on the upper right.
2010 July 28
4633 thumbnail picture
Angular boulders of volcanic rocks.
2010 July 28
4634 thumbnail picture
Angular boulders of volcanic rocks laying over gravel and sand bottom. An eel-like fish is in the bottom center.
2010 July 28
4635 thumbnail picture
Small conical mounds with holes in the top, probably some sort of animal burrow. The right-most mound is reminiscent of a bee-hive.
2010 August 1
4636 thumbnail picture
Small conical mounds with holes in the top, probably some sort of animal burrow.
2010 August 1
4637 thumbnail picture
A slab of mudstone, possibly part of landslide debris. The orange colored material is probably of biological origin.
2010 August 2
4638 thumbnail picture
Layers of mudstone or perhaps volcanic ash flows.
2010 August 5
4639 thumbnail picture
Three layers of rock, each with distinct characteristics.
2010 August 5
4640 thumbnail picture
Relatively large sand waves on the seafloor indicating high current regime in this area.

4641 thumbnail picture
A live clam is inspected on the seafloor at Kawio Barat. Many of these were seen just sitting on the seafloor as opposed to buried in sediment.

4642 thumbnail picture
Shrimp in vicinity of hydrothermal vent on Kawio Barat
2010 June 30
4643 thumbnail picture
Shrimp and rivulets of moten sulphur at Kawio Barat. Molten sulphur at high temperature is black while the yellow sulphur indicates a lower temperature when molten. Diffuse vent fluids in the area promote the growth of bacteria, attracting dense populations of shrimp that graze on the food source.
2010 June 30
4644 thumbnail picture
A nearby hydrothermal vent, a scale worm, shrimp, and precipitates of native sulfur at a vent field on Kawio Barat.
2010 June 30
4645 thumbnail picture
A vent shrimp on a carpet of granular material in the Kawio Barat vent field.

4646 thumbnail picture
A hydrothermal spire covered with barnacles on Kawio Barat.
2010 June 30
4647 thumbnail picture
Barnacles feeding at the hydrothermal field at Kawio Barat. These barnacles are stalked, which most likely benefits the barnacle by getting it off the seafloor and into the water column, raising its likelihood of encountering passing plankton while feeding.
2010 June 30
4648 thumbnail picture
Orange iron oxide hydrothermally altered rock with white bacterial material growing. Small orange coated creature in lower left center is bristle worm.
