Testing the HOG sampler!

Collecting pristine samples from deep sea hydrothermal vents is not easy. After a year and a half of design, UofSC machine shop time, special orders from awesome suppliers like McLane and Keika and Titanium Joe, funding from NSF and the Deep Carbon Observatory, the Hydrothermal Organic Geochemistry (HOG) sampler is ready for its pool test. The expedition launches on September 8!
