Studies of the subseafloor biosphere require an understanding of the physical characteristics of oceanic crust and in particular its hydrological state. Marine geophysics provides many tools to infer subsurface structure and processes remotely, but hydrological properties are difficult to infer from other physical parameters and are best constrained by controlled, in situ experiments. Because of the lack of boreholes at unsedimented ridge-crest sites, our knowledge of hydrological processes at… CONTINUE READING
