ObjectivesThe main objective of the cruise was to survey a close grid of N/S lines in an area 12 x 9 miles. The area is still well noted for pockmarks and the detailed survey was to investigate these anomalies and to check the area for any small pockets of gas lying near the surface. It was hoped to survey lines 1000 metres apart with the Bath University Sonar as to be able to build up a mosaic of the whole of the sea floor. Among these tools were conventional multi-spark seismics, pinger profiling and the Nova Scotia Research Foundation Deep Tow Sparker System.
