Purpose
(a) document and understand geohazards associated with the rapid tectonic 
deformation occurring in the GoC active margin,(b) survey regions of active gas 
venting and investigate biodiversity and asociated biological communities in the 
Gulf, and(c) understand cycling of carbon from the seafloor to the ocean water 
column.
Information to be Derived
Geohazards associated with the rapid tectonic deformation occurring
at the Gulf of California active margin, neotectonics of San Andreas fault
system; surveys of active gas venting, biodiversity and associated biological
communities in the Gulf, improved understanding of cycling of carbon from the
seafloor to the ocean water column
