Comment from PI:

2014-15: CISICS was deployed at the base of the chimney in a area where seepings are diffuses.

2013-14: CISICS was deployed on top of the chimney. On 29/09/13 13:50, the instrument slid down the edifice so data after that date are not to be taken into account. There were no water sampling due to inlet clog.
