Case Study: Assessment of Airborne Extremophilic Microbial Diversity on Kerguelen Island
10 July 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 using the Coriolis®µ air sampler.
