Abstract:
The 2004 Gulf of Alaska Seamount Expedition will use the deep submergence vehicle (DSV) Alvin to explore five large seamounts. Giacomini, Pratt, Welker, Denson, and Dickens seamounts stretch over a 400-nautical-mile section of the northeast Pacific, called the Kodiak-Bowie Seamount Chain. Operating from a base aboard the R/V Atlantis, scientists will dive to depths of up to 3,500 m to conduct a series of biological and geological investigations on these ancient volcanoes.

All four of the Principal Investigators aboard this cruise were part of the Gulf of Alaska Seamount Expedition in 2002, as were other scientific researchers, many of the ship's crew, the sub's crew, and the cruise coordinator. The research foci of this mission include:

- Geologic dating and characterization of the seamounts - Deep-sea coral distribution and genetics - Community ecology of deep-sea corals - Investigation of the microbial, invertebrate, and fish communities associated with the corals

Purpose: BASIC RESEARCH
Supplemental_Information:
The NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research sponsored the collection of these data.

Expedition produced the following data: Cruise Plans and Objectives Documents, Cruise Summary Reports, Quick Look Report, 18 Dive Sample Logs, 4 Maps, Media Poster, 5 Sample Log Spreadsheets, Highlight Images and Captions Documents, Highlight Videos and Captions Documents, Video Annotations Logs, Fledermaus Images, Ship Map Images, Geophysical Raw Data (centerbeam and seabeam), Ship Sensor Raw Data (adcp, athena, athena90, CTD_cast, CTDgraphs, kundsen, xbt), Submersible Navigation Data (ACNAV, DVLNAV), Submersible Sensor Raw Data (alvin_ctd, athena_data_logger).

Other NOAA offices hold the data that NODC has not archived under this Accession.
