Part of the sediment microbiology sampling team from the German-American expedition on board the research vessel (R/V) Maria S. Merian at North Pond, 22 degrees north on the Western flank of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge samples material for study. From the left, the researchers are USC postdoc Nina Knab, University of North Carolina postdoc Jennifer Biddle, Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology postdoc Aude Picard and USC professor Katrina Edwards. The researchers are sub-sampling the core on the right at specific intervals for various analyses, whereas the core on the left is one archived in the Max Planck Institute core repository.
