Information Specialist
Carolyn Ruppel
Equipment Used
1) Image seafloor
2) Map top of subsea permafrost in very near shore
3) Survey for possible methane emissions at distal
inferred end of permafrost offshore
4) Collect data to help constrain whether seaward limit of permafrost is
'real' or related to a lithologic change
