Feeding barnacles and some vent shrimp seen at Kawio Barat.
2010 June 30
4651 thumbnail picture
Feeding barnacles and some vent shrimp seen at Kawio Barat. The tentacles, or cirri, of the barnacles, extend like blooming flowers, then fold back into the shell. The white fluff on the cirri are filaments of bacteria that grow in the passing vent water. The barnacles hold them out to promote growth, and then, apparently, retract the cirri to "lick their fingers."

Barnacles attached to hydrothermal vent spires feeding at Kawio Barat. Curiously , the density of barnacles decreases with height and at a color change on the large vent spire in the right center of the image.

The first animals sighted on this initial dive to Kawio Barat were clams sparsely scattered over the sediment and white mats, both of which use vent fluids as energy for associated microbes.

4664 thumbnail picture
Vent shrimp with varying degrees of coloration from either bacterial or mineral material. The seeming large shrimp is an optical illusion as it is swimming and closer to the camera than the shrimp on the rock face.

4665 thumbnail picture
Hydrothermal vent spewing heated fluids on the flank of Kawio Barat volcano. Rivulets of yellow and gray native sulfur are frozen in place after having run partially down the volcano's side. Numerous large shrimp can be seen below the vent.

Vent shrimp, gray rivulets of native sulfur, and some balls of yellow sulfur seen on volcanic gravel-like material in lower left.
2010 July 29
4669 thumbnail picture
Vent shrimp next to active vents. The center vent seems to be impregnated with sulfur giving it a yellow hue. Yellow material seen in some rivulets and in block in upper right is native sulfur.
2010 July 29
4670 thumbnail picture
Stalked barnacles, three scaleworms, and numerous vent shrimp are seen on a rock wall in the vicinity of a hydrothermal vent. The third scaleworm is well- hidden. Can you find it?

4671 thumbnail picture
Vent chimneys covered with stalked barnacles on the slopes of Kawio Barat.

4672 thumbnail picture
An eelpout in the vicinity of hydrothermal venting activity. The rocks here bear evidence of past venting with iron oxide staining from hydrothermal fluids.
2010 July 29
4673 thumbnail picture
A pinkish red shrimp swims over rock with hydrothermal alteration as well as a carpet of yellow balls of native sulfur to left and bottom right. The yellow sulfur balls seem to grade into orange in the upper portion of the image, perhaps indicating additional interaction with iron oxide and sulfur.

Small white shrimp relatively devoid of coating, a large red shrimp with a coating of material (bacteria? mineral?) at a site where native sulphur has been deposited. Yellow sulphur indicates relatively lower temperatures when molten than black sulphur.
