Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Pulley Ridge, southeastern Gulf of Mexico, Florida, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Principal Investigator(s): David Twichell
Affiliate Investigator(s): Robert Halley, USGS-St. Pete; Al Hine, USF
Information Specialist(s): David Twichell
Data Type(s): Imagery: Photo, Imagery: Video, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Boomer, Sonar: Multibeam, Sonar: Sidescan
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Use sidescan sonar, multibeam bathymetry, and high-resolution seismic data to map the geologic framework and distribution of deep water reefs west of the Florida Keys. An ROV was used to video the deep-water reef to determine extent and composition of benthic biota.
