AUV Sentry navigation and along-track data (SCC ASCII format), Jurassic Quiet Zone survey (TN272, 2011)
Two AUV Sentry dives were conducted during 2011 Thompson cruise TN272 to the western Pacific (chief scientists Masako Tominaga and Maurice Tivey). Along-track geophysical and water-column data was collected by AUV Sentry during these deployments. The data is provided as SCC-formatted ASCII text files, with column headers, and is sampled at 1Hz. The data set was collected and processed as part of the projects called A Deep-AUV Magnetic and Seismic Study of the Hawaiian Jurassic Crust - The Global Significance of Jurassic Magnetic Anomalies; and, A High-Resolution Deep-AUV Magnetic Survey of the Hawaiian Jurassic Basin. Funding was provided from NSF awards EAR10-29965, OCE10-29573 and EAR12-33000.
