Article on the hydrothermal fluid emission in the Guaymas Basin

Our latest work on the hydrothermal fluid emission in the Guaymas Basin has been published.

  • Horstmann, E., Tomonaga, Y., Brennwald, M. S., Schmidt, M., Liebetrau, V. & Kipfer, R. (2021). Noble gases in sediment pore water yield insights into hydrothermal fluid transport in the northern Guaymas Basin. Mar. Geol., 434, 106419, doi:10.1016/j.margeo.2021.106419.

The article is freely available until March 19th 2021 though this link.

Fluid emission along the Nankai Trough

Our most recent publication is now available on-line!

  • Tomonaga, Y., Yagasaki, K., Park, J.-O., Ashi, J., Toyoda, S., Takahata, N., & Sano, Y. (2020). Fluid emission along the Nankai Trough: He isotopes reveal direct seafloor mantle-fluid emission in the Kumano Basin (southwest Japan), ACS Earth Space Chem., doi:10.1021/acsearthspacechem.0c00229.

The work is directly related to the NoGOS project and the time I enjoyed working in the Marine Analytical Chemistry group at the Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute (AORI) of the University of Tokyo.
