AT11-07 Bathymetry
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 AT11-07 (2004)
This data set was acquired with an Imagenex 881 Scanning Sonar on the HOV Alvin during Atlantis expedition AT11-07 conducted in 2004 (Chief Scientist: Dr. Hans Schouten; Investigator(s): Dr. Vicki Ferrini). These data files are of Text (ASCII) format and include Bathymetry data that were merged with navigation and processed after data acquisition. Data were acquired as part of the project(s): Microbial Biofilms and Fluid Chemistry on Larval Settlement at Deep-sea Hydrothermal Vents, Central Anomaly Magnetic High: Constraints on the Volcanic Construction and Architecture of Young Upper Oceanic Crust, In-Situ Sensors for Monitoring the Chemistry of Hydrothermal Fluids, and Establishing a Role for Fe and S Microbial Metabolism in Ocean Crust Weathering, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): OCE01-17117, OCE02-41791, OCE98-19261, and DOEI-TS03. This data was cited by Ferrini et al., 2007.
