Marine Geoscience Data System
VANC27MV Backscatter:Optical, CurrentMeasurement, Pressure, Velocity:Doppler
MARGINS:Funded
Current measurements, pressure and optical backscatter data from the PNG MARGINS Focus Site collected during Melville cruises VANC27MV, VANC29MV and VANC30MV (2004, investigator Andrea Ogston)
This data set was collected with instruments on seafloor-mounted Benthic Boundary Layer (BBL) tripods. The files are in MATLAB format and were generated as part of project called Processes Controlling Depositional Signals of Environmental Change in the Fly River Sediment Dispersal System: Mechanisms and Rates of Shelf Clinoform Development. Funding was provided by NSF award OCE02-03351.
