Purpose
Studies of sedimentation processes in submarine canyon and sediment
movements on the shelf above.
Information to be Derived
Sedimentation patterns, currents, benthic faunal types.
Summary
Four Alvin dives into the lower Hudson Canyon were made as part of
a Woods Hole program sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. Data was
obtained on sedimentation patterns, currents, and benthic faunal types and
activities at water depths between 2,800 and 3,400 m.
