Processed Near-bottom Bathymetry Data (ASCII format) derived from Scanning Altimetric Sonar Data from the East Pacific Rise at 9N acquired with HOV Alvin during Atlantis expedition AT15-15 (2007)
This data set was acquired with an Imagenex 881 Scanning Sonar on the HOV Alvin during Atlantis expedition AT15-15 conducted in 2007 (Chief Scientist: Dr. Timothy Shank). These data files are of Text (ASCII) format and include Bathymetry data that were merged with processed navigational data after data acquisition. Data were acquired as part of the project(s): Collaborative Research: Integrated Studies of Biological Community Structure at Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vents, IDEA: Coupling Communication Technology with in Situ Voltammetric Analyzers for Real Time and Unattended Monitoring of Biogeochemically Relevant Chemical Species, and Collaborative Research: MIP: Physiology and molecular ecology of thermophilic nitrate-reducing microorgansisms at deep-sea hydrothermal vents, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): MCB04-56676, OCE03-08398, and OCE03-27353.
