    • Microbial activity in the marine deep biosphere : progress and prospects 

      Orcutt, Beth N.; LaRowe, Douglas E.; Biddle, Jennifer F.; Colwell, Frederick S.; Glazer, Brian T.; Kiel Reese, Brandi; Kirkpatrick, John B.; Lapham, Laura L.; Mills, Heath J.; Sylvan, Jason B.; Wankel, Scott D.; Wheat, C. Geoffrey (Frontiers Media, 2013-07-11)
      The vast marine deep biosphere consists of microbial habitats within sediment, pore waters, upper basaltic crust and the fluids that circulate throughout it. A wide range of temperature, pressure, pH, and electron donor ...
    • Seawater-peridotite interactions : first insights from ODP Leg 209, MAR 15°N 

      Bach, Wolfgang; Garrido, Carlos J.; Paulick, Holger; Harvey, Jason; Rosner, Martin (American Geophysical Union, 2004-09-10)
      We present first results of a petrographic study of hydrothermally altered peridotites drilled during Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Leg 209 in the 15°20′N fracture Zone area on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR). We find that ...
    • Sulfur isotope evidence for microbial sulfate reduction in altered oceanic basalts at ODP Site 801 

      Rouxel, Olivier J.; Ono, Shuhei; Alt, Jeffrey C.; Rumble, Douglas; Ludden, John (2008-01-08)
      The subsurface biosphere in the basaltic ocean crust is potentially of major importance in affecting chemical exchange between the ocean and lithosphere. Alteration of the oceanic crust commonly yields secondary pyrite ...
