Carolyn Ruppel Chief Scientist
Benjamin Scandella MIT
Conduct pseudo-3D survey of methane seep field in deepwater part of
lake in advance of MIT ROV deployment & diver-deployed lander installation
for physics/chemistry studies (to be carried out in early 2011).
Information to be Derived
Sea floor map;Bathymetric maps;Sea floor map;
Bathymetric maps;
Water column imaging
Reoccupied sites of former seeps
Filled in areas needed to complete bathymetric map
Conducted high resolution survey of deep basin where we had previously
recognized numerous seeps
