Equipment Used: Grab sampler - Van Veen , HYPACK, SeaBOSS, Boomer, Single channel hydrophone, Video camera - deep sea, Digital camera, Knudsen CHIRP Sub-bottom Profiler
Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: 51 Stations occupied with SEABOSS; 31 km of seismic lines were run with the Knudsen; 59 km of seismic lines were run with the Boomer.
