Abstract

A submersible dive on a turbidite-covered spreading axis in Guaymas Basin photographed and sampled extensive terraces and ledges of talc. The rock contains siliceous microfossils, smectite, and euhedral pyrrhotite as well as rather pure iron-rich talc. S and O isotopes indicate precipitation around a hydrothermal vent, at about 2800C. - Authors
