Figure F11. Example of data collected with autonomous outrigger thermistors. Measurement interval is 5 s. The relative temperature value remains constant through penetration for three sediment thermistors and one bottom water thermistor. A. Full temperature series showing temperature on the ship, lowering of the core through the water column, penetration, and recovery. B. Expanded section of thermistor penetration. Initial period of temperature rise and equilibration follows penetration of the seafloor by the probe. The core is left in the sediment for 7 min.
