Additional Documentation: Other data reported to have been collected on this cruise were single-channel, seismics. Single beam bathymetry data from 34.97403 to 41.64260 degrees W are from URI, processed multibeam bathymetry with an interpolation scheme in 1 MINUTE, EXTRACTIONS CLOSEST TO THE MINUTE (VERTICAL BM), Navigation for the multibeam bathymetry was shifted to match bathymetry in the, survey area.
