Okeanos Explorer (EX1402L1): Gulf of Mexico Mapping and Exploration

EX1402L1; EX1402L1

browse graphic
During EX1402L1, multibeam,single beam, and subbottom data will be collected 24 hours a day and XBT casts will be conducted at an interval defined by prevailing oceanographic conditions, but not to exceed 6 hours. All multibeam data will be fully processed according to standard onboard procedures and will be archived at the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC). Subbottom sonar data will be also be archived with NGDC. Split-beam EK60 data will be archived at the National Oceanographic Data Center.

    Purpose EX1402L1 is a deep water exploratory mapping expedition along a transit path south along the edge of the Atlantic continental shelf south of Rhode Island, to top priority targets in U.S. Federal waters offshore of Florida in both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, and to the port of Galveston, Texas. EK60 single beam sonar calibration and testing will be completed.
