Chief scientist: Dave Twichell
Robert Halley, USGS-St. Pete; Al Hine, USF
Objectives: 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.
Type of Activity: Seismic profiling; Sea floor mapping;Sea floor mapping
