11912 thumbnail picture
A flat area on Kelvin Seamount with uniform rippled sediment indicating a high current regime. The rock is perhaps a glacial dropstone. These occasional high points serve as desirable anchors for sponges, small corals, and associated fauna. Approximately 2000 meters depth.

Odd gradation of black pebbles with white sand sediment appearing only to the right of a strongly demarcated line.

11923 thumbnail picture
Ropy excrement perhaps from an acorn worm.
20141004T152514Z
11924 thumbnail picture
Perhaps a small sediment flow but probably caused by the thrusters on the ROV.
20141004T153802Z
11925 thumbnail picture
Perhaps a small sediment flow. Note lasers indicating that ROV was probably not the source of sediment disturbance.
20141004T153852Z
11926 thumbnail picture
Some sort of algae growing around an area of dead cup corals interspersed with live cup corals. The anemone does not seem affected.
20140920T144329Z
11927 thumbnail picture
Plastic bag and wire on the seafloor. The wire has been on the seafloor for a substantial time as it is being colonized by various lifeforms.
20140921T132306Z
11928 thumbnail picture
White plastic? paper? in close proximity to pancake urchin while eel swims in center of image. Note trail formed by urchin.

11930 thumbnail picture
A yellow basket? straw hat? providing habitat for a few brittle stars.
20140921T133326Z
11931 thumbnail picture
A tangle of monofilament line on the seafloor. It has been there sufficiently long to have a small orange anemone attached to it. An urchin is also wandering through it.
20140921T135253Z
11932 thumbnail picture
A blanket? canvas? blue plastic? wedged between dead cup corals. A pycnogonid crab strolls over the seafloor.
20140923T170922Z
11933 thumbnail picture
Almost invisible monofilament line used in longline fishing between a sea pen ( Anthoptilum sp.) and a xenophyophore.
20140925T182352Z
11934 thumbnail picture
A plastic strap on the seafloor.
20140929T184153Z
11935 thumbnail picture
A clear glass bottle filled with sediment. There is a separation of sediment types within the botlle with white shell material dominating the bottom half of the bottle.
20141001T170037Z
11936 thumbnail picture
A clear glass bottle filled with sediment. A white globular urchin is attached. The bottle appears to have disrupted the sediment flow of fine-grained material in the area.
20141001T170134Z
11937 thumbnail picture
A clear glass bottle filled with sediment. A white globular urchin is attached.

A clear glass bottle filled with sediment. A white globular urchin is attached.

11939 thumbnail picture
A brown glass bottle. This appears to be a fairly old style bottle and is partially filled with sediment.

11942 thumbnail picture
First map of an oceanic basin. Matthew Fontaine Maury produced this map in 1853 and published it in the Wind and Current Charts for that year.
11943 thumbnail picture
Second map of an oceanic basin. Matthew Fontaine Maury produced this map in 1854 and published it in the Wind and Current Charts for that year. This map had significantly more data than the 1853 map including soundings by Lt. Otway Berryman, USN, on the USS DOLPHIN over the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) north of the Azores. These were the first soundings on the MAR.
11944 thumbnail picture
Bottom characteristic map of the approaches to New York Harbor by "United States Hydrographical Office" as published in Matthew Fontaine Maury's Wind and Current Charts for 1858. Data from United States Coast Survey. Note there is no expression of Hudson Canyon below the continental shelf break although the channel of the Ice Age Hudson River is clearly shown.
11945 thumbnail picture
First profile of an oceanic basin. Matthew Fontaine Maury produced this profile in 1854 and published it in the Wind and Current Charts for that year.
11946 thumbnail picture
An early example of a microscopic examination of ocean bottom sediment. This was published with a report by Lt. Joseph Dayman, RN, who ran a line of sounding s across the Atlantic Ocean from Newfoundland to Ireland on HMS CYCLOPS in 1857. This was the second line run and covered the same ground sounded by Lt. Otway Berryman for the USCS on the ARCTIC in 1856.
11947 thumbnail picture
Sounding on the HMS CYCLOPS in mid-Atlantic Ocean in August 1857. The diagram on the right shows the problem with early hemp sounding line methods. The line would keep running out after reaching bottom and the surveyors would not be able to ascertain an accurate depth.
11948 thumbnail picture
Top panel same as image map00006. Bottom panel demonstrates method of detaching weight and retrieving bottom sample such that the surveyor would at least know that the sounding weight had reached bottom. However, this did not improve the accuracy of the sounding.
11949 thumbnail picture
Western section of survey line run by Lt. Joseph Dayman on HMS CYCLOPS during telegraph cable survey of 1857. The work of Berryman and Dayman between in 1856 and 1857 respectively marked a new era in ocean exploration, the beginning of systematic surveys, in this case to determine a telegraph cable route.
