NBP0002 Gravity:Field
Ship-based Trackline Geophysical Data (MGD77) acquired during the Nathaniel B. Palmer expedition NBP0002 (2000)
This data set was acquired with a ship-based Gravimeter and Subbottom Profiler during Nathaniel B. Palmer expedition NBP0002 conducted in 2000 (Chief Scientist: Dr. James Austin). These data files are of MGD77 format and include Bathymetry, Gravity (Field and Free Air Anomaly) data that were processed during the cruise. Data were acquired as part of the project(s): The Young Marginal Rift as a Key to Understanding the Rift-Drift Transition and Andean Orogenesis: OBS Refraction Profiling for Crustal Structure in the Bransfield Strait, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): OPP98-14041
