Collecting Methane from a Seep

Image shows an instrument collecting gas from a seafloor seep

Detailed Description

ROV SuBastian deploys one of the gas tight samplers, which capture the methane bubbles escaping from the seep. Once a sufficient number of bubbles have been caught, the ROV will trigger the device, sucking the bubbles into the metal tube. This particular seep is in Astoria Canyon, off the coast of Oregon.
