Cover to RAS intake at Marker 33 site in the 1998 lava flow area. The RAS (remote access sampler) was deployed in this location the previous year, recovered and replaced on the 2007 cruise. The RAS takes fluid samples at a programmed interval throughout its deployment. Also at this site is a MTR (sticking through cover near top) which will record fine-scale temperature readings. A view of the fluid sampler itself can be seen on the August 6 logbook entry.
