Abstract : The research grant N00014-90-J-1834 supported a 75-day geophysical field program on Reykjanes Ridge in the North Atlantic Ocean and Aegir Ridge in the Norway Basin of the Norwegian Sea. The field program took place in summer 1990 on R/V Maurice Ewing of Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory; the program was carried out jointly by researchers at the Naval Research Laboratory Code 5110, Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory and University of Hawaii. University of Hawaii responsibility included providing and operating the SeaMARC II seafloor mapping system during the course of the field program, processing the SeaMARC II side-scan sonar and bathymetric data to produce seafloor charts and sonar mosaics, and participating in the geophysical interpretation of the data
