Oceanographic data collected during the EX1502L2 (Caribbean Exploration (Mapping)) expedition on NOAA Ship OKEANOS EXPLORER in the North Atlantic Ocean from 2015-03-16 to 2015-04-03 (NCEI Accession 0127386)

EM302 multibeam data will be collected 24 hours a day and will be gathered over previously unexplored regions. Data will be used to better understand the bathymetry of the Puerto Rican trench and allow reconnaissance of the region prior to the ROV cruise. Multibeam operations within 5 miles of land in priority area 1 will be conducted during daylight hours. XBT casts will be conducted at an interval defined by prevailing oceanographic conditions, but not to exceed 6 hours. XBT data will be used to correct the sound velocity of the multibeam data. Additionally, EK 60 (single beam) and sub-bottom profile data will be collected 24 hours per day.
