Application Note: Assessment of Airborne Extremophilic Microbial Diversity on Kerguelen Island
17 January 2018

This study aimed to determine if thermophilic microorganisms could be transported through airborne processes and colonize new environments. Diversity assessments of the communities present in hot water were performed and fumaroles and aerosols were collected in the vicinity of the hydrothermal fields with the Coriolis®µ  air sampler.
