AT15-14 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 AT15-14 (2006)
This data set was acquired with an Imagenex 881 Scanning Sonar on the HOV Alvin during Atlantis expedition AT15-14 conducted in 2006 (Chief Scientist: Dr. James Ledwell). 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): Larval Dispersal Along the Deep East Pacific Rise (LADDER-2), Collaborative Research: Oceanographic and Topographic Influences on Dispersal of Hydrothermal Vent Species, Development and colonization processes in Alvinella pompejana, Hydrothermal Vent Meiobenthos, Potential of hydrothermal plumes as a source of dissolved iron (Fe) to the deep ocean and a sink of dissolved organic carbon (DOC), Chemical Characterizations of Vent Habitats, Development, Growth and Cell Kinetic Studies in Riftia Pachyptila, and Preliminary Deployment of Magnetic Collectors for Examination of Vent Particle Dispersal, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): OCE04-24953.
