InterRidge Cruise Travel Bursary - new award

The InterRidge Office is pleased to announce that it has awarded a cruise travel bursary to Adam Schaen. Adam is studying geochemistry at Bridgewater State University, USA and will be collaborating with Dr. Wolfgang Bach, University of Bremen, on a research cruise to the Eastern Manus Basin. During this collaboration, isobaric gas-tight samplers will be used to collect high-temperature vent fluids, which will undergo chemical and isotopic analysis. Adam will study how interactions between rocks and vent fluid-seawater mixtures modify the compositions of diffuse fluids.
