Comments = site 1; #_of_images = 1871; DSPL DigiSeacam Serial #: 6004; Photo Rate: 10 sec; Settings: 1/60 sec, F2.6; Wait Time: 60 min; First Bottom Picture Time: 13:50:30 Z; Site Description: TowCam 1 traversed N to S along eastern edge of axial valley over rifted terrain, water depth 2610 m. Cliff just to the east of traverse has 50 m of relief. The traversed turned westward over deeper (~2660 m) seafloor near 20deg 4.5min S, towards rifted cluster of cones at 20deg 4.8min S. The traverse then headed towards the western wall of the rift valley wall, ending near a small "peak" ~20 m high.

Comments = site 2; Settings: DSPL DigiSeacam Serial #: 6004; Photo Rate: 10 sec; Settings: 1/60 sec, F2.6; Wait Time: 60 min; First Bottom Picture Time: 14:16 Z; Total # of Photos: 1900. Site Description: TowCam 2 traversed terrain from the west wall of the rift valley located north of 29deg 20min S and 176deg 09min W. Camera will traverse obliquely down west wall from approx 2550 m down to 2700 m and will then traverse to the northeast traversing hummocky volcanic terrain and then following the axial rift to the NNE through a small split cone that appears to have a small pit crater in it. Objective is to characterize the volcanic terrain in the axial rift in this area and to prospect for hydrothermal vents in the area around the split cone.

Site Description: Tow was closely spaced grid of mostly E-W lines in two small (~100-200 m) boxes over the area just west and south of Tow#4 lines to cover seafloor beneath ABE anomalies. N.B.- No core balls were loaded so no rock core samples from this lowering.
