Notes on Vent Field Description: 
depth approximate using position in GeoMapApp; Wang et al. (2011): "The second section was located between 41.6 and 41.7 S where turbidity anomalies detected below 2400 m also provided evidence for the existence of hydrothermal activities."; Baker et al. (2014): "ORP data are only available from the 2010 cruise to segments K and L, where distinct anomalies were detected at 10 separate locations"
Notes Relevant to Biology: 
Year and How Discovered (if active, visual confirmation is listed first): 
2007 plume only; 2010 plume only
