Figure F9. Schematic overview of retrievable CORK observatory instrumentation, sampling, and experimental packages to be deployed at each site during Expedition 336. The microbiology package is the Flow-through Osmo Colonization Systems (FLOCS) package (see Orcutt et al., 2010, and BOSS = BioOsmoSampling System (see​faculty/​girguis/​BOSS/​BOSS_index.html). 2ML4 = osmotic membrane that pumps at a slower rate, thus diluting the sample with acid, biocide, or a microbial enrichment factor. Additional information about OsmoSamplers can be found in Jannasch et al. (2004) and at the Web sites above.
