Equipment Used
Bathymetry - Swath System
Calibrate bubble emission from natural gas vents offshore Coal Oil Poin
t with the SwathPlus sidescan. ROV Survey of Coal Oil Point Seeps to sample oil
and gas from natural
seeps and to document unusual seafloor features that turned out to be newly
discovered tarmounds on the oceanfloor.
Information to be Derived
Samples and Chemical Analysis;
Digital Video from ROV, Tar samples taken with grab, gas
samples taken with sampler designed and built by Gerry Hatcher.
We collected Swath side scan of some of the natural oil and gas seep
bubble plumes to quantitate natural seepage flux rates.
Navigation technique: XXXXX / Omnistar.
files on /imgarc2/S-1A-08-WO ROV work was a successful trial 9 days at sea. 7 stations occupied.
