[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Dive #857 by Shinkai 2000 was carried out at Iheya Ridge of Okinawa
Trough in April 1996 to collect deep sea sediments and rocks. Some
rocks collected near hydrothemal vents were covered by white microbial
mats. Detailed studies by analytical devices showed that the white
microbial mats consisted of a lot of needle-like quartz crystals and
spherical materials. The spherical materials existed around quartz
crystals. It can be considered that they influence the formative
period of these crystals.
