Leg 193 Synthesis: Anatomy of an Active Felsic-Hosted Hydrothermal System, Eastern Manus Basin, Papua New Guinea

Binns, Raymond; Barriga, Fernando; Miller, DJ


In the Ocean Drilling Program's only foray to an active seafloor hydrothermal system hosted by felsic volcanic rocks at a convergent plate margin, deep penetrations were achieved at two contrasted sites within the PACMANUS field (Manus backarc basin, Papua New Guinea). Just 1.0 km apart, these sites are characterized, respectively, by diffuse low-temperature venting at the seabed (Site 1188, Snowcap site; 1650 meters below sea level [mbsl]) and focused high-temperature venting (Site 1189, Roman...[Show more]
