AT15-14 CurrentMeasurement
Processed LADCP Sonar Data (ASCII format) from the East Pacific Rise at 9N acquired during Atlantis expedition AT15-14 (2006)
This data set was acquired with a LADCP Sonar during Atlantis expedition AT15-14 conducted in 2006 (Chief Scientist: Dr. James Ledwell; Investigator(s): Dr. James Ledwell and Dr. Andreas Thurnherr). These data files are of Text File (ASCII) format and include Current Measurement data and were processed after data collection. 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\r 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.
Device Info
A level of processing has been undertaken, ensuring quality control (e.g. ping edited sonar data, edited navigation data).
