Chris German shows the class a plume MAPR (miniature autonomous plume recorder). This instrument measures depth, temperature and seawater particle concentrations. In addition, the MAPR has an oxidation reduction probe, which allows us to detect chemically reactive species that would be present in fresh plumes.
