Figure F2. Microbial activity depth profile of surfaces/​cavities, expressed by adenosine 5′-triphosphate (ATP) monitoring (relative light units [RLU]). At the other sites not listed here (Sites M0008, M0010, M0013, and M0014), material was not appropriate to measure ATP activity (e.g., in basaltic sands). Overall, there was almost no microbial activity detected in the recovered cores. A. M0019A. B. Hole M0020A. C. Holes M0023A (blue) and M0023B (pink). D. M0009D. (Continued on next two pages.)
