20140416T141220Z

20140416T202148Z

Dipping strata can be seen on the right hand mound in this area of relatively lifeless white mounds.
20140418T185625Z
11027 thumbnail picture
Mysterious paleodictyons. These small arrays of seemingly biologically produced borings have mystified geologists and marine biologists. This may be the first time evidence of this life form has been found off the oceanic ridge system.

11031 thumbnail picture
Mounds with dipping strata in an area relatively devoid of benthic life.
20140418T201507Z
11032 thumbnail picture
An odd array of lines probably caused by some form of benthic fauna. These are reminiscent of Nazca lines, particularly the bird wings. Why do they only extend through a semi-circle instead of completing the circle?
Gulf of Mexico, Keathley Canyon, 2600 meters depth 20140420T151045Z
11033 thumbnail picture
Small mounds in a flat sedimented area swept by currents as shown by the ripple pattern.
Gulf of Mexico, Keathley Canyon, 2600 meters depth 20140420T162755Z
11034 thumbnail picture
A large cratered hole. Probably caused by biological activity. The crater is filled with sargassum weed and seems to have an exit path extending to the upper left.

11039 thumbnail picture
Sediment cloud in vicinity of mudstone cobble. Is this cobble sliding down the grade or is the sediment cloud caused by propulsion unit on ROV?
20140421T164752Z
11040 thumbnail picture
Sediment cloud in vicinity of mudstone cobble. Path followed by cobble is clearly shown. This seems similar to terrestrial windblown snow rollers leaving tracks in the snow.

11041 thumbnail picture
Parallel sediment chutes on the flank of Bryant Canyon.
