Cruise period1997-07-01 — 1997-07-19
StatusCompleted
PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThe objectives of this cruise are to run the TOBI sea floor imaging vehicle to provide a suite of geological observations on the detailed morphology and shallow seismic character of the sea floor within three key target areas on the Norwegian margin, south of 68° N. These new observations are aimed to complement existing data from earlier cruises into these areas, where synoptic-scale morphological data, along with seismic architecture and core material, were acquired.
