Alternate Leg ID: PE-04-49; P1-04-GM
Area of Operations: Atwater Valley, Mississippi Canyon, Gulf of Mexico, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: June 20, 2004 to June 23, 2004
Objectives: Collect bottom camera and electrical resistivity data across two possible gas hydrate mounds in the Mississippi Canyon, northern Gulf of Mexico, as part of a site survey for the JIP/DOE Gas Hydrates Drilling Program.
Type of Activity: Bottom Photography
Bottom resistivity profiling (WHOI)
Information to be derived: Sea floor map
bottom imagery to investigate benthic distribution and gas hydrate
electrical resistivity profiles across mounds and at drilling transects
Summary: This was a successful cruise with 5973 bottom images collected on four tows; the EM data fulfilled the objective of showing proof of concept for the system (17 km on 9 lines).
