1. Purpose We deploy four different types of instruments; OBEM (Ocean Bottom
Electro-Magnetometer), OBS (Ocean Bottom Seismometer), OBSP (Ocean Bottom Seismometer with Pressure gauge), and OBSM (Ocean Bottom Seismometers with Magnetometer). The OBEM and OBSM are used to observe magnetic and electric field variations at the ocean bottom across the central and southeast Indian Ridges near the Rodriguez Triple Junction. The OBSs including the OBSP and OBSMs are used to conduct seismic observation at the ocean bottom near the Kairei hydrothermal vent site in the first segment of the central Indian Ridge. These observations continue up to the recovery of the instruments during another Yokosuka cruise in this March. The OBSs are also used for active seismic surveys to investigate seismic velocity structure during this cruise and the recovery cruise. Further, we conduct surface geophysical survey mainly during night and transit times. The central and southeast Indian Ridges spreading system shows different spreading rate with different topographic characters, which give the one of the best locations to investigate dependence of seafloor-spreading system on a parameter of spreading rate. In the slower spreading central Indian Ridge, the Kairei vent site exist and extrude hydrothermal fluid with richer hydrogen content compared to other hydrothermal vents in the world. The observed data will be analyzed to derive upper mantle structure, crustal structure, and hypocenter distribution, which will provide important constraint on following four main points to understand the seafloor-spreading system; 1) imaging melt delivery to the spreading axis, 2) production and character of the crust, 3) relationship between melt supply and crustal formation, and 4) pathway and heat source for hydrothermal circulation with related to its formation. Moreover, we check the TRITON buoy No.18, which is missing after 3 Dec. 2012 due to no satellite communications.
