  • DEBI-SELECT: Probing the Subseafloor
    to benefits such as the discovery of new bacterial species with biomedical or industrial potential Every time someone does something in the subsurface they find a whole bunch of novel microbes says Wheat We sort of know what category they re in but we don t necessarily know what they re doing The main reason so little is known is that accessing the sub realm is so difficult particularly the basalt rock layers found below the relatively more accessible sediments DEBI SELECT will help overcome this problem as part of a growing series of experiments and activities aimed at finally understanding the subseafloor The Technology Wheat is working with Bill Kirkwood at TLR Inc Chris Kitts at Santa Clara University and William Hug at Photon Systems Inc This team is creating an innovative sensor and sampling instrument package that can be lowered into existing holes in the seafloor as part of the long term Ocean Drilling Program These holes which are in water depths from 2 000 to 5 000 meters offer a unique window into otherwise hidden rock layers There is good reason to believe that life in the boreholes should be the same as would be found in the porous spaces of the inaccessible subsurface once enough time has passed for normal activity to resume after a hole is drilled months to years Nonetheless only twice have instrument packages aimed at studying microbial subseafloor life been lowered into these holes and only one of these was equipped with a sensor that could directly measure life Neither could collect samples So great potential remains open to leverage the billions already invested in drilling programs to answer key questions about life beneath the sea DEBI SELECT will include a derrick and winch system rated to 5 000 meters that will lower a sensor laden probe into a borehole First the complete package will be lowered from a ship to a spot near a borehole and disconnected A remotely operated vehicle ROV will then position the package over a borehole and then control the winch to lower the probe up to 1 kilometer beneath the seafloor This feat will require substantial advancements in tether management systems as it is 7 to 10 times the cable length that has been used in other similar applications A hole might be characterized in just a couple of days work One key instrument will be an advanced fluorescent probe for detecting microbes This will be a modified version of a device called DEBI t used in past research Fluorescent probes emit light of one wavelength that living cells absorb then reemit at a slightly different wavelength The unit measures the return of this light as a way to quantify the microbial cells and spores present in this case either on rock walls or in the associated water The package will also include a variety of sensors for parameters such as temperature and pH nitrate and sulfide sensors devices to collect water samples and microbes on
